My Olympic hero is Usain Bolt because he has an association that helps children in Africa and he have some things incommon with me: dancing, music, reggae, football,… . He is a Jamaican sprinter and a five-time World and three-timeOlympic gold medalist. He is the world record and Olympic record holder in the 100 metres, the 200 metres and (alongwith his teammates) the 4×100 metres relay. He is the reigning Olympic champion in these three events, and is one of onlyseven athletes (along with Valerie Adams, Veronica Campbell-Brown, Jacques Freitag, Yelena Isinbayeva, Jana Pittman,Dani Samuels) to win world championships at the youth, junior, and senior level of an athletic event.Bolt expresses a love for dancing and his character is frequently described as laid-back and relaxed. Bolts Jamaican trackand field idols include Herb McKenley and former Jamaican 100 m 200 m world record holder, Don Quarrie. MichaelJohnson, the former 200 m world and Olympic record holder, is also held in high esteem by Bolt. The first sport to interesthim was cricket and he said if he was not a sprinter he would be a fast bowler instead.Bolt has also expressed his love for football and is a fan of Manchester United as well as Real Madrid. Bolt has alsodeclared he is a fan of Dutch striker Ruud van Nistelrooy. Following a race in Manchester, he met the team at their trainingground and offered Portuguese national Cristiano Ronaldo some sprinting advice. Bolt was a special guest of ManchesterUnited at the 2011 UEFA Champions League final in London, where he stated hed like to play for them after he retires.In 2010, he also revealed his fondness of music, when he played a reggae DJ set to a crowd in Paris.My favorite inspiring quotations are: A light heart lives long. William Shakespeare The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up. Paul Valery Imagination is more important than knowledge. Albert Einstein
