Bolt, Usain, 1986-, Jamaican sprinter. Unusually tall (6 ft 5 in./1.96 m) for his sport, he won the gold medal for the 200-m sprint at the 2002 world junior championships (WJC), and broke the record he set at the next two WJCs. Recovering from injury, he did poorly in the 2004 Olympics, but won gold in the 200-m at the 2007 world championships and ran a record 100-m sprint in 2008. At the 2008 Olympics, Bolt won gold in all the events he entered, the 100-m and 200-m sprints and the 400-m relay. He was the first Olympic athlete to set world records in all those events, and broke his 100-m and 200-m records at the 2009 world championships.
