The fastest man on earth is not called so without a reason!
Usain Bolt is a nine-time Olympic gold medalist and is also called Lightning Bolt due to his speed as a sprinter. He recently raced against a motorcycle taxi in Lima, the capital of Peru.
And no prizes for guessing who won the race. Duh! Bolt, of course!
What is remarkable was that he was merely jogging on the track and still reached the finish line way ahead of the colourful motorcycle taxi. He also cheekily looked back over his shoulder at the driver of the taxi, smiling at him. After winning the race comfortably, he struck his iconic ‘Lightning Bolt’ pose, driving his fans into a frenzy.
Bolt was in the Peruvian capital as part of the promotional activity for the Pan American Games that will be held in Lima later this year.
