Bolt won the hearts of every American at the 2012 Summer Olympics when he paused in mid-interview to honor the U.S. national anthem as it was being played. Bolt politely interrupted the reporter interviewing him and stood at attention, reminding the world what a class act looks like.
The Olympic legend is an inspiration to millions around the world, but it’s what mainstream media is hiding about Usain Bolt that’s touching hearts even more.
Usain Bolt is known for his extraordinary speed and joyous facial expressions while competing, and you don’t have to look too hard to discover where that joy comes from: Bolt is outspoken about his faith in Jesus Christ.
Bolt made history again at the 2016 Rio Olympics when he won gold in the 100-meter race, making him the first athlete to win three successive titles in the event. He’s smashed world records and won 7 gold medals as a reigning champion at the 2008, 2012 and 2016 Summer Olympic Games. Despite mainstream media’s constant dismissal of his Christian faith, Bolt defied all odds and reached heights most athletes will never see — all by the grace of God.
