Born in Jamaica, Usain Bolt or "the fastest man alive" as he is often referred to is one of the most celebrated Olympians of all time. His lightening bolt speed caught the eye of his school coach and Bolt began competing professionally at aged 15. In 2002, Bolt won the 200-meter race making him the youngest world-junior gold medalist ever.
In 2008, Usain Bolt became the first person ever to win gold in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay whilst setting new world records for all three events.
