Jamaica’s Bolt Wants No Part Of Highway


CaribWorldNews, KINGSTON, Jamaica, Fri. Aug. 27, 2010: Jamaican Triple Olympian, Usain Bolt, has reportedly declined an offer to have a section of a highway in his country named after him.

Jamaica Gleaner reports indicate that Bolt`s camp declined the offer almost a year after it was first announced in Parliament by Jamaica`s Prime Minister Bruce Golding.

Golding had said that a section of Highway 2000 was to be renamed in honor of the Olympic gold medalist and world record holder.

The Gleaner said it has been reliably informed that the sprinter`s management team sent a letter to the country`s Ministry of Youth, Culture and Sports declining the offer.
