My favourite athlete

Usain bolt the fastest man in the world he holds the world record 9.58. he runs in the 100 meter sprint and the 200 meter sprint. He also has the world the world record for 200 meter sprint 19.30 seconds. He also set the world record in the the 4 times 100 metres  relay. He is the reigning Olympic champion in these three events, the first man ever to win 6 Olympic gold medals and a five time world champion.

His achievements in sprinting have earned him the nickname lightning bolt. At the 2012 Olympics, he won the 100 metres gold medal with a time of 9.63 seconds, setting a new Olympic record for that distance and defending his gold medal from the 2008 olympics. he followed by fellow jamaican Yohan blake, who won the silver with a time of 9.75 seconds.

bolt made an impressive performance with a successful run of his 200 metres gold medal with a time of 19.32 seconds. Followed by fellow Jamaicans second place yohan blake at 19.44 and bronze medalist Warren weir at 19.84. Usain bolt became the first man in history to defend both the 100m and 200m Olympic sprint titles.

In fact, bolt was so comfortably ahead near the finish that he was able to slow down, put his left finger to his mouth and told everyone to shush. As soon as bolt crossed the finish line, he did five push ups, one for each of his olympic gold medal. On the final day of the 2012 olympics athletics, bolt participated in jamaican gold medal winning 4x100 metres relay team consisting of bolt, nesta carter, michael frater and yohan blake. With a running time of 36.84 seconds, they broke jamaicas previous world record of 37.04 from 2011.
