This week, Ambassador Dr. The Hon. Usain St. Leo Bolt, OJ was named winner of the 2012 Global Jamaican Award by The Gleaner Co. Ltd.
According to the article:
“It’s so heavy!” declared the good-humoured, legendary, world-record athlete, Usain Bolt, as he balanced his Gleaner Global Award with one sexy, muscular arm. “But it is very good looking, so when I’m finished making my trophy room it will definitely be prominently placed right up there.”
The photo below shows the front of the award with the inscription:
“For energizing Jamaicans and keeping Brand Jamaica top of mind globally“
