The fastest man in the world, virtuoso of the 100 meters, conqueror of the 200 meters. The man who broke records on the athletics tracks. Nicknamed “Lightning Bolt”, pure talent combining exceptional physical qualities with a relaxed and generous attitude, the 24-year-old Jamaican sprint star took the occasion to be in South Korea to participate in the IAAF World Championships. With the world’s fastest man, this event included a ribbon cutting ceremony, a scholarship presentation to future athletes and a signing event for VIP customers who discovered the Hublot Unico King Gold, limited to just 500 pieces.
This is the second time of having Usain Bolt in Daegue. He won a 100-meter race in 6th Daegue World Championships in athletes with the record of 9.86 seconds in May. The final 100-meter race which he will be competing in will be held at 8:45 p.m. 28th August. Usain Bolt is the favorite and Hublot wish him Good Luck.
