News Americas, MIRAMAR, FL, Mon. July 17, 2023: Jamaica’s triple Olympian and world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt, is now forever immortalized in the United States and specifically in the vibrant, Jamaican-populated city of Miramar, Fl.


Bolt was on hand Saturday to unveil the bronze statue that was created by acclaimed Jamaican artist and sculptor Basil Barrington Watson. The celebrated athlete graced the Ansin Sports Complex in Miramar for the unveiling and then warmly interacted with fans.

“This statue marks only the beginning, as countless art pieces will grace our city, adorning our parks and other spaces for the entire community’s delight,” stated Miramar Vice Mayor Alexandra P. Davis.”

Entitled “Anything is Possible, No Limits,” the statue according to Davis serves as a constant reminder to all who behold it.

As the world record holder and esteemed athlete, Bolt conveyed an essential message to aspiring young athletes who yearn to achieve their goals. “Begin taking your dreams seriously at an earlier stage. Looking back, I realize I wasn’t as focused when I was younger,” he reflected. “It took me some time to fully comprehend the depths of my talent and what I could truly accomplish with it. If I could impart advice to my younger self, it would be to embrace dedication and seriousness much sooner.”

Watson’s previous work includes the first commissioned statue of Usain Bolt, titled “To the World,” crafted for the Jamaican government in 2017.

The funding for this endeavor was primarily secured from developers, as part of the Art in Public Places fund, which requires developers to contribute if they are unable to provide artwork within their facilities. The statue’s cost is reportedly USD 250,000.

Hailing from Trelawny, Jamaica, Bolt astounded the world with his unparalleled speed, setting multiple world records in the 100 meters, 200 meters, and 4 × 100 meters relay.
