Olympic Champion and World's Fastest Man Usain Bolt Greeting Fans/Shoppers at Macy's, NYC
NY: Two lucky fans and shoppers got an extremely rare opportunity to meet and greet Jamaican and Olympic sprint phenom, Usain Bolt, as he visited Macy's at Mid-Town Manhattan.
The fastest man on Earth is set to participate at the adidas Grand Prix, a Diamond League annual track and field showdown at Icahn Stadium, Randall's Island. New York, tomorrow, Saturday, June 13, 2015.
Seven years ago on a wet track in this stadium, Bolt rewrote the history books with his first 100m world record of 9.72 seconds. Interestingly, the meet had to break midway due to a brief lightning storm which probably was a warning of the ‘lightning run’ the fans would witness later that night in the final event.
As is customary, nowadays when Usain Bolt competes, the stadium is sold out way in advance and the World and Olympic champion’s return to the 11th New York Adidas Grand Prix will guarantee another bumper crowd.
Bolt rarely runs in the United States and being a consummate entertainer, the world and Olympic champion may deliver another 'lightning' performance that will leave the New York fans ecstatic for a number of years to come. Interestingly, Bolt will be competing in the 200m on this occasion.
