Born on 21 August 1986 in Trelawny, Jamaica, The legendary sprinter, Usain Bolt (also known as the Lightning Bolt,) never really took his running seriously and was always interested in cricket and football as a child. On the insistence of his cricket coach he decided to enhance his sprinting abilities and dedicated his time to training for track and field events at school. He was the fastest runner at school. The five-time World champion is the first man ever to bag 6 Olympics gold medals in sprinting. Recently at the 2012 London Olympics, he declared himself “a legend” and “the greatest athlete” to have ever lived after he became the first man to win both 100m and 200m titles, twice in a row, and made a world record in 4x100m (36.84 seconds) relay. He is little hopeful of repeating his win in the 2016 Rio Olympics as he is going to hit his thirties. So, how does Kipp connect this highest paid athlete in track and field to a British fashion designer and a philanthropic organisation. Read on to find out.
