RJR national Sportsman and Sportswoman Awards - Usain Bolt
Iconic sprinter Usain Bolt will be looking to win a record equalling sixth RJR Sports Foundation National Sportsman of the Year Award next Friday.
The sprint world record holder won a historic triple-triple of consecutive gold medals at last summer’s Olympics in Rio, Brazil to lead the male nominees.
His win would equal former boxing great Michael McCallum’s mark of six Sportsman of the Year titles.
Bolt won titles in 2008, 2009, 2012, 2013 and 2015.
Bolt has won a total of 20 world titles, including 11 World Championship medals titles.
Meanwhile, it was a stellar year for Jamaican athletes, who led by Bolt’s three gold medals in the 100, 200 metres and sprint relay won a total of 11 medals at the Games.
They included six gold, three silver and two bronze.
