Overview

Learn about the incredible life of Usain Bolt, the record-breaking athlete who's charisma and drive has won his fans across the world.

Growing up in a rural town in Jamaica, Usain was a standout cricketer and sprinter from a young age. His school coach noticed his talent, and by age fourteen he was wowing fans with his lightning speed on the track. Due to a medical condition named scolosis, it took Usain time to develop a training routine that worked for him, but by listening to his body and working with professionals, he learned his strengths and played to them. In 2008 he took the world by storm at the Beijing Olympics when he broke numerous records. The following year he put his name in the history books when he became the 100m and 200m world record holder at the world championships.

Despite the pressure, Usain continued to achieve great things - including starting a foundation to help children achieve their dreams. Usain's story teaches us that any dream is achievable if you put your mind to it and believe in yourself. This powerful book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the sprinter's life.
