“I am Bolt” opens in theaters

Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt took part in press conference in London on Monday (November 28) ahead of the world premiere of his new film looking at his record-breaking career.

“I Am Bolt” follows the nine-times Olympic gold medallist in his gruelling training and competition as well as relaxing at home, giving fans a glimpse into the life of the man nicknamed “Lightning Bolt”.

 

The documentary, which includes location footage from the Beijing World Championships, Rio Olympics and London Olympics, also has video from Bolt’s youth and interviews with family members, friends and coach. Bolt, who became the first person to win three consecutive 100 and 200 metres Olympic golds in Rio de Janeiro in August and is the world record holder in the two disciplines, can also be seen talking about his nerves and fears ahead of a race.

“I wanted to make people see what I went through to get to where I am at today. You know what I mean? And for me these guys… they really capture that for me. And it was… when I watched the movie, it was so good because I could feel all emotions throughout everything like I was reliving my life again when I was watching that and that is why I was really so pleased about what they have done, because they have captured everything that I wanted them to capture.”

 

The 30-year-old has said he plans to retire from the sport after the August world championships in London. He told reporters he wanted to do more charity work afterwards as well as give something back to his sport.

The documentary, includes footage from the 2016 Cayman Invitational. “I am Bolt”, was released internationally today.
