The Lightning Bolt is coming!
Almost as fast as the speed of light, Usain Bolt will be in the Cayman Islands next week for the second annual Cayman Invitational.
It will be the Jamaican speedster’s first 100 metres of 2013.
Arguably the most charismatic individual in the history of sport, there is no doubt he is the fastest.
World record holder at 100 metres, in 9.58 seconds.
World record holder at 200m in 19.19 seconds.
World record holder member 4x100m relay team in 36.84 seconds.
First in Olympic history to win 100/200m in record times.
First to win 100/200m in consecutive Olympic Games.
First to gain three world records in a single Olympics.
First to win six gold medals in Olympic sprint events.
Bolt has won 30 gold medals representing Jamaica at various championship levels ranging from the CARIFTA Games to the Olympics.
He has been named IAAF Male Athlete of the Year four times and is a three-time recipient of the Laureus Sportsman of the Year Award.
Last year, in his opening appearance at 100m, Bolt was clocked at 9.82 seconds. Can he better that result on Wednesday 8 May?
Bolt said: “I’m looking forward to running in Cayman. It will be my first 100m of the season and my first time to run in Cayman.”
Meet organiser Cydonie Mothersill-Stephens said: “It’s a great pleasure and honour having Usain grace our shores and I hope that the people of the Cayman Islands will come out and show him Cayman style love and support.
His coach Glen Mills stated that he too is looking forward to the Cayman Invitational because it is a crucial part of his preparation for the World Championships in Moscow, Russia in August.
