Usain Bolt

Apps, Roy, author; King, Chris (Illustrator), illustrator

Usain had a dream, he wanted to play cricket. But an eagle-eyed coach spotted his sprinting talent at school in Jamaica. Usain soon discovered that the path to becoming a pro-athlete is tough going, and if he was to fulfil his destiny and become the fastest man on Earth, he was going to need every ounce of determination, plus a great sense of humour. This is the story of Usain's discovery, his first athletic events and the Olympic Games
