Puma Presents Usain Bolt's Legacy Spikes Ahead Of His Last Race

Usain Bolt's achievements have earned him respect from all and it is safe to say that he has earned himself the legendary status in athletics. The Brewery's staff, who were specially dressed in PUMA clothing, welcomed guests with arrival drinks and canapés while the evening was broadcasted live on BBC, ITV and Sky.

Yohan Blake is the second fastest man in the world this year - and of all time, behind Bolt. And now the great track and field superstar is getting ready for his final hurrah as the World Athletics Championships kicks off in London on Friday.

But for now, Canada still has a very strong team at the World Championships.

As his long, illustrious career reaches its end, Usain Bolt is confident he will not be overwhelmed by emotion at the World Athletic Championships in London on Saturday and has his sights set firmly on signing off with victory.

Bolt has always been open about his admiration for United, but it seems the sprinter now believes there may be a future for him with the ball at his feet, rather than as a spectator in the crowd at Old Trafford.

"His impact on the sport alone has been massive and now I'm having an opportunity to build a small relationship with him as I continue my journey".

The ceremony was held in honour of Usain Bolt who will run his last races this August on the global stage, with his 100m final on the 5th August and 4x100m relay on the 12th August.

With three rounds of the 100m, roughly 30 seconds of action, left of his career, could Bolt, weighed down with 19 World and Olympic gold medals, possibly bow out in defeat?

Not only had the 22-year-old, a triple medalist at last year's Olympics, suggested airily that Bolt might be slowing down but his team had also said the Jamaican's camp ensured he was kept out of their recent 100m race in Monaco, a suggestion they denied vehemently.

"I am just concentrating on staying in my own lane".

"I was like, 'Who is this kid?'" Sharpe said.

"It's definitely a good space to be in, it's great to see the guys supporting me as an athlete and backing the athlete I'm becoming and also the belief I'm receiving when it comes to what I'm doing shows I'm moving in a positive direction as an athlete". He wrote, "Last Training Session before my last race in London". "I said, 'I think we have something here'".

Yet his absence now smooths the path for world 400m record holder Van Niekerk, who is seeking the same 200m/400m double that Michael Johnson last achieved at the 1995 Gothenburg World Championships.
