Usain Bolt donates signed shoes to charity

Usain Bolt is still riding high on his multiple record breaking sprinting performance from the Beijing Olympics last year and although it’s the early days of the 2009 season his schedule is packed with more than just training. The lightening Bolt has given a boost to the fund-raising efforts of the New York-based Children of Jamaica Outreach (COJO), signing three pairs of sneakers which are to be auctioned.

The sneakers were donated by Usain’s main sponsor Puma and are part of a limited edition set produced in commemoration of Bolt’s previous world record mark clocked at the Reebok Grand Prix in 2008 of 9.72 seconds. Although he went on to lower the mark futher in Beijing shoes from this set are very rare and valuable.

  2. I just won this one competition and PUMA sent me this email

    “Hi Daniel – Just sent out your prize package. I included a really unique
    pair of Bolt shoes that we did after he set the WR the first time (9.72),
    but before Beijing. We only made limited quantities so it’s a pretty rare
    shoe. It’s not one to wear around, but probably something cool to put up on
    a shelf. I hope you enjoy it all.”

    I wonder if these are the shoes that I am getting,Hope so [smile]
