Winning gold in the Olympics

is an athlete's greatest dream.

Usain Bolt has already

achieved that dream three times.

This year, at the 2012 Olympics,

he has the chance to

go one step further.

Bolt could be the first sprinter in

history to win gold in the 100, 200

and 100-metre relay in

two consecutive Games.

If he does it, he'll become one of

the greatest Olympians who ever lived.


But in athletics,

there are no guarantees.


'On your marks. '

'Set. '

GUNSHO Usain is back in training after

being injured for several months.

His schedule is way off track.

The World Athletics Championships

in Daegu, South Korea,

are just six months away.





I've known him 20 years.

I've known him since I

was a child, very young.

When we were at primary

school, the first grade,

I'm NJ and his nickname was VJ.

I'm a teacher. I can teach

history or social science.

Right now, I'm dealing with his

affairs, as his assistant manager.

# This is my time... #

Yeah, our signature rap!

#.. This is my time... #


Usain lives in Jamaica's

capital, Kingston.

Whassup? Whassup? Whassup? Whassup?

He lives here in a house which

he shares with a group of mates,

including his childhood friend NJ.

11, 12. VJ, go down.


- Hard?

- Everything feels hard.

- It's never an easy day.

- Do you need your friends to do this?

They're trying to lose

weight for the girls.

It's not working, though.


Set, go!

And a quick start by Usain

Bolt! And he stumbled!

What can you say about that?

Look at Usain Bolt!

That's 7.4. It's not bad.

But Usain Bolt is still there!

And it's Usain Bolt!

Oh, my God!

That's 7.2. A little bit

slower than the first one.

Can Usain Bolt catch up?

Can he stay...? He stumbled! Usain Bolt!

Oh, my God! That's 8.8!

Can he make it? Look at

the finish. Look at him!

Oh, my God!

A new world record!


A new world record for Usain Bolt.

This is dinner.

He's the master.

A former athlete, but

now a chef. He's the man.

Coach tells him what I should get in

my diet and he makes sure it happens.

In the evening, it's open

house at the Bolt residence.

His brother Sadeeki, some old friends

and a few of Jamaica's

finest athletes gather

for a game of dominoes.

That's as wild as it gets.

Usain hasn't always lived in Kingston.

He grew by three hours away

in Jamaica's rural north-west.

The fastest man in the world

was born in the sleepy

village of Sherwood Content,

where time seems to have stood still.

It's wonderful in the

morning, waking up.

That's why I love going back

home. It's peaceful. You can relax.

Breathe in some fresh air.

The Bolt family still live in

the house where Usain was born

on 21st August, 1986.

When, of course, when Usain was born,

I was happy that he

was a boy, of course.

I always wanted a boy then.

He was big. He was a big baby.

He weighed 9.5lbs.

And the nurse said, this guy

looked like he was on the earth

for quite a few months

before he was born.

He's the type of person who doesn't

sit down. He always keeps moving.

And then the doctor said he was

hyperactive. Too many energy.

He had to use it up.

It was free. We could be wherever

we wanted to go, the river -

it was unrestricted.

His mother, she overprotected.

She loved him too much.

Sometime if he do anything

wrong, she might hide it from me

because she didn't want

him to get a spanking.

Usain didn't always

want to be an athlete.

As a child, he had a different passion.

When we were growing up,

cricket was his sport.

Brian Lara, Courtney Walsh, Curtly

Ambrose. Cricket was a passion.

He did want to be a cricketer.

He played cricket and

tracks at primary school.

But we decided the future,

and we said, "Well...

"I think it's best

for him to do tracks. "

He didn't look like the

rest of the youngsters.

Just the way he was built,

he looked different than the others.

He was taller than them, very skinny.

He stood out from the crowd.

Following his father's advice,

Usain turned his back on

his first love, cricket,

and focused his energies on sprinting.

In 2001, aged just 14,

he entered his first international

competition in Hungary.

The main thing was the way he ran.

He was upright with his strides

and his knees were always

coming up very high.

Bolt won the heats, but was

eliminated in the semi-final.

The defeat didn't matter.

Bolt had proved what

his father believed,

that he had huge

potential as a sprinter.

His talent on the track didn't

go unnoticed. The next year,

he was selected for the World

Junior Championships in Kingston.

Just 15,

Bolt lined up against athletes

three to four years his senior.

He didn't want to go because he said

he just didn't think he could

beat those guys, you know?

But he was persuaded by his

grandmother and his mother.

He started to cry and we told him

that he shouldn't worry about that.

He's going out there and

whatever is done, we'll accept it.

He dried up his tears

and the next morning, he was out.

'On the outside,

Kluczynski going very well.

'Kluczynski on the outside. Usain

Bolt of Jamaica takes the lead

'in the 200 final, heading

towards a gold medal.

'Usain Bolt is the

World Junior Champion!'

The crowd started to roar

and everybody was just

shouting, "Bolt! Bolt!"
