Usain Bolt busts the myths

Postby WIndiesFans.com » Fri Sep 20, 2013 12:59 am

We think we know a lot about Usain Bolt. Science tells us he can run at 27mph, unleash 2,619.5 watts of power and produce 81.58 kilojoules of kinetic energy in a 100m sprint – that’s 50 times more than a bullet leaving a Magnum handgun. Sports fans know he has six Olympic gold medals and eight world titles, business experts have calculated he earns $24m a year, and broadcasters know his 100m victory at London 2012 attracted two billion viewers. But with fame and success come strange legends, wild stories and tabloid rumours which are harder to verify. So how much do we really know?

Here, fresh from his triumphs in Moscow, the man himself tells us what he thinks about the stories that have shaped his public image.
