Usain St. Leo Bolt is a sprinter born on August 21, 1986 in Trelawny, Jamaica. His first worldwide competition was at the 2001 IAAF World Youth Championships in Debrecen, Hungary, where he failed to qualify in the 200 m event. He first became famous at the the World Youth Championships in 2002 because he won a gold medal. He then did a lot of other competitions around the world (World Championships, CARIFTA Games, IAAF World Cup, etc.). It's in 2008 that he participated in his first Olympic Games in Beijing, China. He set new world records for every event he participated in.

After Beijing he took some time off, then returned to competition in 2011. He struggled in competition for much of 2011 and 2012, but in London he duplicated his three gold medal feat of four years earlier.
