First Prev 1 2 3 Next Last

Usain Bolt greeted students at the National Stadium as he began a whirlwind tour of Bermuda today.

The superstar sprinter delivered a speech to excited pupils at the venue where he set his first world record in the Men's Under-20 200m race at the 2004 Carifta Games.

Bolt, an eight-time Olympic gold medallist, offered words of inspiration by telling students: “Hard work is everything.”

He said: “Never give up on your dream. To be one of the best you have to keep pushing yourself.”

Also today, the Jamaican will sign autographs and pose for pictures at the Digicel store on Church Street from 12.45pm to 1.45pm.

He is on the island in his role as “chief speed officer” for phone firm Digicel.
