Usain Bolt gets Order of Jamaica
Jamaica: He may have been on the podium many a times and is no stranger to awards either, but Usain Bolt, the world`s fastest man and Jamaican ace sprinter, got a prestigious award like no other in his native country`s highest honours.
Bolt received the Order of Jamaica during the heritage celebrations in Kingston. At the age of 23, Usain Bolt is the youngest person ever to have received such an honour.
Prior to this, the Jamaican government had also re-named a highway after the Olympic and world champion and record-holder.
Usain Bolt’s legacy rose to an entirely new level when he ran 9.58 seconds in the 100 metres at the world championships in Berlin in August. He ran 19.19 in the 200, breaking the records he set at the Beijing Olympics.
