Usain St Leo Bolt has been honoured with a monumental statue in Jamaica. The sprint legend has been immortalised in bronze with the unveiling of the eight foot statue in his honour at the Jamaican national stadium yesterday Sunday 3rd December depicting his trade mark ‘to the world’ pose.

In his acceptance speech,  Bolt opted to freestyle where he admitted he was loss for words after listening to all the tributes from the president of the Jamaican Athletics Administrative Association Warren Blake, and Victor Lopez, president of the North American, Central America and Caribbean Association of Athletics;  Sebastian Coe, president of the International Association of Athletics Federation ( via video ); Sports Minister Olivia Grange, and Dr Peter Phillips leader of the parliamentary Opposition.

Bolt was reminded by prime minister Andrew Holness that Jamaica owes him alot. And the legend Bolt responded saying:

No words to describe how I’m feeling right now. How is this even possible? Barefoot youth from country, run up and dung, drop, buck toe, all them supp’n there. I’ve never ever, at no point, felt that I would be in this moment, as big as it is now among statues at the National Stadium where it all began.
“This is why I always encourage everybody and this is why my motto says anything is possible, no limits. Because at no point in time I ever thought I would ever achieve this much but I’ve always pushed on and stayed focused for what I want.” Bolt concluded by saying how appreciative he was about the statue.
