“Usain Bolt Dead 2016”: World's Fastest Man Killed ... You Will Not Believe What Killed Him ...

Jamaica's Usain Bolt points upwards as he collects his gold medal on the podium after winning the men's 200m event at the London 2012 Olympic Games at the Olympic Stadium August 9, 2012.


The fastest man on the planet, sprinter Usain Bolt, has admitted that he now has a different perspective on life and is closer to God after his involvement in a car accident in 2009, according to Jamaica Gleaner.

In an hourlong Live interview with BBC 5 last Thursday, Usain Bolt, the six-time Olympic gold medallist and 100m and 200m world record holder, said that experience has changed his life and put him closer to God.

"I definitely think that I am a different person as a result of that car crash," Bolt told the host Mark Pougatch. The superstar sprinte is currently promoting his second autobiography – Faster Than Lightning.

Bolt, who noted that he has since attended church on a more regular basis, also stated that he is now convinced his purpose is not just to win medals and break records, but also to inspire people, reported Jamaica Gleaner.

"There are so many things that could have happened in that car crash and I came out unscathed. No problems, so I just look at it that I am just blessed to run, and from that I just wanted to inspire people," he added.

“It (the accident) has made me look at my life. But I was brought up as a Christian with my parents,” he admits, according to BBC 5.

Bolt also acknowledged that when he got to Kingston, he didn't go to church as often, but he has gone to church a lot more (now). "(I don’t go to church) as much as I should, but I have gone a lot more,” said Bolt.

Bolt is not ashamed to talk publicly about his life and faith in God. On August 11 this year, Bolt won the 100 metres title at the World Championships in Moscow. The next day, the king of speed asked the Lord's forgiveness in a message posted on Twitter because a church in Jamaica finished its service early so that the parishioners could catch the final on television. "God I am sorry", he wrote.

According to The Guardian, Bolt is reconsidering his plan to retire from athletics after the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. The 27-year-old had suggested he would quit in 2016, but he now admits it is probable that he will compete for another year after that.

Where as some trusting fans believed the post, others were immediately skeptical of the report, perhaps learning their lesson from the huge amount of fake death reports emerging about celebrities over recent months.
