‘I want people to see that I train hard’ – Usain Bolt starts London promotional tour for candid documentary



USAIN BOLT has had a busy start to his week as he promoted the release of his debut film, I Am Bolt, in London.

The history-making Jamaican athlete, who has dominated sprinting over the last decade, made guest appearances on BBC 1Xtra’s morning show alongside host, Amplify Dot and then on Nick Grimshaw’s Radio 1 show.

“PR day,” he wrote on his official Twitter page. “Ready for the London weather.”

In I Am Bolt, fans will finally see how much dedication and effort goes into making running really, really fast, look really, really easy.

Shot on location in Beijing, London, Rio, Germany and London, I Am Bolt, which is released on November 28, has unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the man himself.

He told Amplify Dot that the main reason behind releasing this documentary was so people can see “I train very hard”.

“My aim with making this film is to show people how my life really is,” Usain said.
“What I’ve been through to get me where I am today, the ups and the downs, and an insight into what I am thinking and feeling. I know a lot of people around the world feel like they know me already but I’m excited for everyone to see the real me in I Am Bolt.”

In August, Usain completed the triple treble as he clinched gold in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay events at the Rio Olympics – just as he did in Beijing in 2008 and in London in 2012.
