Widely considered one of the greatest sprinters of all-time, Usain Bolt is a three-time 100m and 200m Olympic champion who collected 11 world titles over an international career that began when he was in his late teens.

Still winning awards, even in retirement. Usain Bolt is the 2017 winner of the President’s Award at the IAAF Athletics Awards in Monaco for his outstanding contribution to the sport.

Bolt, 31, won four world 200m titles, three at 100m, and holds the world record over both distances, 9.58 at 100m and 19.19 at 200m.

The Jamaican retired this season after taking 100m bronze at the World Championships in London to end his career as one of the most recognised athletes in the world.

This IAAF President’s Award recognises and honours great service to athletics.

“This wonderful award means the world to me … it shows the younger generation that with hard work and dedication, anything is possible,” said Bolt.
