Basically the world’s fastest man ever timed, Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt was cheered by an audience as he entertained them but not on the tracks.
Bolt was having a good time at a press conference at the Rio Olympic Games 2016 as he danced the Samba with a line of Brazilian showgirls.
The sprinter is schedule to start his Olympic run on August 13th with the 100 meters qualifying rounds.
A win in the men’s sprints for Bolt will mean an unprecedented triple-triple of gold medals.
In the meantime, he will join the Jamaican pre-Olympic camp, waiting to become the first man to win gold medals in the 100, 200 and 4×100 relay at three successive Games.
Aside being an athlete, Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt also sees himself as an entertainer and sure had a good time with the girls on stage.
“They like when I do crazy stuff,” Bolt said as he posed dramatically for the cameras.
He had been training and receiving medical treatment in Munich after he pulled out of the Jamaican trials with the hamstring injury.
However, he has bounced back and is ready to chase the medals.
The 29-year-old six-time Olympic champion is among 59 track and field athletes in Jamaica’s 63-member delegation.
Meanwhile, at the conference, Bolt was asked whether the sprint races at the Games would be drug-free, he replied; “nothing is guaranteed.”
Nevertheless, he assured everyone that necessary measures are being put in place to ensure fairness in the games.
“People should have faith,” said Bolt. “We’re weeding out the bad ones. We’re going in the right direction.”
Bolt also confirmed Rio games to be his last Olympics. In February, the world record athlete hinted that he will retire from athletics after the 2017 World Championships.
