About the author

Usain Bolt is a Jamaican sprinter widely regarded as the fastest person ever. He is the first man to hold both the 100 metres and 200 metres world records since 1977. Along with his team-mates, he also set the world record in the 4×100 metres relay. He is the reigning Olympic champion in these three events, the first man to win 9 Olympic gold medals in sprinting, and a eleven-time World champion. He was the first to achieve a ‘triple-triple’ by winning 100m, 200m and 4x100m relays titles at 3 consecutive Olympics (2008, 2012 and 2016).
His 2009 record breaking margin for 100 m, from 9.69 (his own previous world record) to 9.58, is the highest since records began.

    If you ever wonder how a normal person like us achieves a goal which seems impossible no matter how hard you tried... Then this book is for you... Where you learn how Usain Bolt gets himself as a pro in Track & Field through roller coaster rides of difficulties and how he prepared himself mentally and physically to stay positive in every competition. Athletics should grab yourself an opportunity to have a look of this :)
