Usain Bolt’s net worth is $34.2 million, Forbes magazine estimated in June 2017, making him the 23rd highest-paid athlete in the world. Bolt leveraged his status as the world’s fastest sprinter to secure more than a dozen sponsors contributing to his earnings, including Mumm, XM, Kinder, Advil and Sprint. His deal with Puma alone pays Bolt more than $10 million every year.

Usain Bolt was born on August 21, 1986 in Jamaica.

Girlfriend

In August 2016, People magazine confirmed Usain Bolt was dating Jamaican model Kasi Bennet. Bolt has been private about their relationship, but he told a journalist in January 2017 that they had been dating for almost three years.

Records and Awards

Bolt is an 11-time world champion. He holds the world records in races for 100 meters, at 9.58 seconds, and 200-meters, at 19.19 seconds, both of which he made at the 2009 Berlin World Athletics Championships. Over the course of his career, Bolt has received numerous awards, including the IAAF World Athlete of the Year (twice), Track & Field Athlete of the Year and Laureus Sportsman of the Year.
Participating in the 2008, 2012 and 2016 summer Olympic Games, Bolt completed a “triple-triple,” with a total of 9 gold medals earned in the 100-meter, 200-meter and 4×100-meter relay races. In doing so, Bolt joined just two other triple-triple runners: Paavo Nurmi of Finland (in 1920, 1924 and 1928) and Carl Lewis of the United States (in 1984, 1988, 1992 and 1996). However in January 2017, the International Olympic Committee stripped Bolt of one of these medals, for the 2008 4×100-meter relay, because his teammate Nesta Carter was found guilty of a doping violation.
