Usain Bolt will be immortalized near Bob Marley and his Jamaican Olympic heroes next year.
Bolt, along with Olympic champion teammates Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Veronica Campbell-Brown and Asafa Powell, will be honored with statues in a park outside the National Stadium in Kingston. The four statues will be constructed in the next two years.
There are a few statues already in that area, including of the singer Marley and Jamaican Olympic sprint legends Herb McKenley, Don Quarrie and Merlene Ottey.
Bolt and Fraser-Pryce’s statues are slated to be finished next year, followed by Campbell-Brown and Powell.Follow @nzaccardi
