Usain Bolt is one of the most dynamic athletes in the history of track and field. On Saturday, August 5th, the Jamaican sprinter competed in his final individual race of his life. Although he would finish 3rd in the race, he will forever be #1 in the hearts of fans.
For nearly a decade, he dazzled fans with his unprecedented speed, larger-than-life personality, and personable attitude. In all, Bolt has collected 8 Olympic Gold Medals, in addition to 11 World Championship Gold Medals.
The most amazing thing about Bolt is his integrity. In a sport that has been tainted due to the number of athletes caught doping, Bolt remained clean.
This commentary celebrates Bolt's achievements on the track, but most importantly, his character.
