Statue of Usain Bolt unveiled at National Stadium

An eight-foot bronze statue of Usain Bolt was unveiled at Jamaica's National Stadium in Kingston on Sunday.
 
The statue, sculpted by Basil Watson, shows Bolt in his trademark 'to the world' stance. 
 
The Jamaican sprinter, who retired after the IAAF World Championships London 2017, was at the ceremony to show his appreciation for the statue.
 
Among those paying tribute at the unveiling ceremony were Warren Blake, President of the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA); Victor Lopez, President of the North American, Central American and Caribbean Association of Athletics (NACAC); Sebastian Coe, President of the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF), who spoke via video; Sports Minister Olivia Grange; and Dr Peter Phillips, Leader of the Parliamentary Opposition.
 
The guest speaker Prime Minister Andrew Holness reminded the Bolt that Jamaica owed him a lot for the branding capital he had given to the country.
