Usain Bolt, more Olympic champions to get statues next to Jamaican legends
Usain Bolt will be immortalized near Bob Marley and his Jamaican Olympic heroes next year.
Bolt, along with Olympic champion teammates Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Veronica Campbell-Brown and Asafa Powell, will be honored with statues in a park outside the National Stadium in Kingston. The four statues will be constructed in the next two years.
There are a few statues already in that area, including of the singer Marley and Jamaican Olympic sprint legends Herb McKenley, Don Quarrie and Merlene Ottey.
Bolt and Fraser-Pryce’s statues are slated to be finished next year, followed by Campbell-Brown and Powell.
