Usain Bolt / Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara ; illustrated by Karen Crosbie.

Summary:

"Growing up in a rural town in Jamaica, Usain was a standout cricketer and sprinter from a young age. His school coach noticed his talent, and by age fourteen he was wowing fans with his lightning speed on the track. Due to a medical condition named scolosis, it took Usain time to develop a training routine that worked for him, but by listening to his body and working with professionals, he learned his strengths and played to them. In 2008 he took the world by storm at the Beijing Olympics when he broke numerous records. The following year he put his name in the history books when he became the 100m and 200m world record holder at the world championships. Learn about the incredible life of Usain Bolt, the record-breaking athlete who's charisma and drive has won his fans across the world!"
