Why • I chose Usain Bolt as my athlete because I like running and I look up to Bolt as a role model for running. I also chose Bolt because he is the fastest human on earth! Bolt started sprinting because he played cricket and his cricket coach noticed he was fast. So he told Bolt that he should try sprinting. Bolt did.
How • In order to be an Olympic athlete Bolt needs some things. He needs training. In Bolt’s training he starts the season with strength development then moves on to coordination and biomechanical execution. He needs good food all the time. And he needs mental strength and confidence.
