Dubai: Legendary sprinter Usain Bolt might have retired from athletics, but his achievements still inspire the whole of Jamaica. As destiny would have it, his last name describes what it's like watching him dominate the track. From kids to adults to everyone, the Jamaican's legacy has had a continuous impact on people's lives. And, in return, he expects no less from any other athletes from the country. 

Before leaving for the Special Olympics World Games, Jamaican sprinters Obrian McFarlane and Daeshawn Green received words of wisdom from Bolt at a send-off event. "He spoke to me just before I left for Abu Dhabi. He said I should go out and soak in the experience because it is the first time and hope I enjoy myself and all of my races. Well, I did and I'm going to do that," said Green.
