Jamaican track and field legend Usain Bolt has spoken out now for the first time since allegedly being scammed out of nearly $13 million, from the Jamaican investment company, Stocks and Securities Limited (SSL).
For the first time since learning that his life savings was stolen, Usain is speaking out, Media take Out confirmed. The legendary athlete looked very stressed out during the appearance, his hair looked thinner, and Usain clearly put on quite a bit of weight.
And what’s worse – you can hear the sadness in his voice. Usain told interviewers that he has no idea what happened to his money. And while many of Usain’s fans are begging him to leave Jamaica – and put whatever money he has left in U.S. or European banks – the legendary sprinter is resolute.
He told the interviewer that “Jamaica is his country”, and he never plans to leave the Caribbean island nation.
Usain’s achievements as a sprinter have earned him the media nickname “Lightning Bolt”, and his awards include the IAAF World Athlete of the Year, Track & Field Athlete of the Year, BBC Overseas Sports Personality of the Year (three times), and Laureus World Sportsman of the Year (four times). Bolt was included in Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2016.
Bolt retired after the 2017 World Championships, when he finished third in his last solo 100 m race, opted out of the 200 m, and pulled up injured in the 4×100 m relay final.
