Jamaica paid what I think is the ultimate tribute to Usain Bolt two weekends ago. A larger-than-life realistic statue of the great man in his iconic pose, “To the world”, was unveiled at the National Stadium.
Some people have a nervous feeling when a decision is made to commemorate a statue to a deserving individual who is still “young”. So much can go wrong in the ensuing years that may cause regret. However in this case, what this young Jamaican has done for the land of his birth (and himself) cannot be quantified. Usain Bolt deserves a statue.
