RO
Printre multele sale realizări se numără aderarea la Asociaţia Internaţională de Atletism în 2002, la vârsta de 15 ani. În anul următor, el a devenit primul atlet junior care a parcurs 200 de metri în 20 de secunde la Jocurile CARIFTA din Hamilton, Bermuda.

El a continuat să crească în 2006, când a depăşit recordul naţional pentru cursa de 200 de metri, deţinut mai mult de 30 ani de Donald Quarrie, tot un jamaican! El a câştigat două medalii de argint la Campionatul Mondial din Japonia. 

În 2008, 2009 şi 2011, el a fost numit Sportivul Anului de către Asociaţia Internaţională de Atletism (IAAF). Un premiu naţional, Ordinul de distincţie, cu rangul de comandant (CD), i-a fost oferit lui de către Guvernul japonez în 2008, împreună cu premiul Sportivul Anului, pe care l-a câştigat, de asemenea, în 2009, 2011 şi 2013. Premiul Bărbatul Anului a fost primit de către Usain în 2008 şi 2009, o altă distincţie naţională, Ordinul jamaican (JO), în 2009, precum şi titlul de Ambasador al ţării.

Institutul de Studii din Caraibe i-a acordat premiul Vanguard pentru interpretarea sa din 2009. Personalitatea sportivă străină a anului a fost doi ani la rând (2008, 2009) Usain Bolt. La înmânarea premiului Commonwealth Awards Sport în 2009, el a fost recunoscut ca Sportivul Anului. În anul 2011, el a fost numit doctor de onoare în drept (LLD), în cadrul Universităţii din Indiile de Vest.

Există mult mai multe alte premii şi recunoaşteri până în prezent. Un atlet premiat şi o carieră minunată, deşi a primit critici la un moment dat. În faţa atacurilor şi criticilor antrenorului său, sportivul a declarat că a avut un singur scop – acela de a reuşi. Această determinare a dat roade şi Usain Bolt este un succes imens!

Astăzi, el este o legendă vie, o legendă urbană - Onorabilul Usain St. Leo Bolt, OJ CD. Acum îl vezi...acum nu ... a plecat ca un fulger! Direct să cucerească lumea!

His many accomplishments include the International Association of Athletics Foundation’s Rising Star Award in 2002 at the age of 15. The following year, he became the first junior athlete to run under 20 seconds in the 200 metres event at the CARIFTA games in Hamilton, Bermuda.

He continued to soar in 2006 and he had a major accomplishment when he broke the national record for the 200 metres event which was held for more than 30 years by Donald Quarrie, also a Jamaican! He won two silver medals at the World Championship event in Japan.

In 2008, 2009 and 2011 he was awarded the Male Athlete of the Year by the International Association of Athletics Foundation (IAAF). A national award, the Order of Distinction, Commander Rank (CD) was bestowed upon him by the Government of Jamaica in 2008, along with the RJR Sports Foundation’s Sportsman of the Year Award which he also won in 2009, 2011 and 2013. The Gleaner’s Man of the Year Award was received by Usain in 2008 and 2009, another national honour, the Order of Jamaica (OJ) in 2009 and the title Ambassador-at-Large.

The Institute of Caribbean Studies awarded him the Vanguard Award for his performance in 2009. The BBC’s Overseas Sports Personality for two years in a row (2008, 2009) was Usain Bolt. At the Commonwealth Sports Awards function in 2009, he was recognized as an Outstanding Male Athlete of the Year. In the year 2011 he was conferred with the honorary Doctor of Laws (LLD) degree by the University of the West Indies.

There are several other awards and recognitions to date. A very decorated athlete and an awesome career although marked by injuries and criticism at some point. In the face of the injuries and the criticisms his coach said he had one goal - which was to succeed. That determination has paid off and Usain Bolt is a huge success!

Today, he’s a living legend, an urban legend – The Honourable Usain St. Leo Bolt, OJ CD. Now you see him...now you don’t...he’s gone like a bolt of lightning! Bolt to di world!
