Usain Bolt may have been the only athlete who upstaged swimmer Michael Phelps in the recent Beijing Olympics. The Jamaican sprinter surprisingly set two individual world records in the 100 and 200 meters and was part of a 4×100 relay world record Jamaican team.
The most exciting athlete in all of track and field, Usain Bolt literally set the gold standard in his breathtaking 2008 performance in Beijing. The Jamaican joined American Carl Lewis as the only athlete to win three golds in sprinting races with victories in the 100, 200 and 4 x 100 relay, but became the first athlete to set world records in winning each event.
This is the guy I would love to be haha, Being a sprinter for butte it would be phenomenal to be Bolt, his importance to society is the impact he has had on the world of sprinting and that he is a household name
