We are proud of our Superman for retaining his title and believe that he will be able to to retain his 200m title also.

Humility and focus are the words that summarise the talent and phenomenon that is World Champion and Olympic Champion, Usain Bolt. He is a living legend and by the time he comes to the end of his career there is no doubt that he will enter into the history books alongside notable sporting greats including Pele and Muhammed Ali.
