Sprint king Bolt comes to aid of ailing alma mater

Sprint icon Usain Bolt has donated JAM$1.3 million ($10,960), along with equipment, to bolster the ailing sports programme at his alma mater, William Knibb Memorial High.

Bolt visited the school, in the town of Falmouth on Jamaica’s north coast, in response to a plea from authorities there after they ran into difficulties in funding the sports programme, on Thursday, reports CMC. Bolt, who still resides in Jamaica, said he had an obligation to help the school whenever there was a need.“William Knibb played an integral role in the athlete and the man that I am today,” the multiple-times World and Olympic sprint champion said. “So anytime they call or if there is anything I can do to give back, I’m more than willing.” Bolt posed for photos with students and also spent time talking with teaching staff.
