Third BBC Overseas Sports Personality Award for Usain

Report from – Sprinter Usain Bolt has been named the BBC Overseas Sports Personality of the Year after winning triple Olympic gold for the second successive Games.

The 26-year-old Jamaican starred at the London 2012 Games as he claimed 100m, 200m and 4x100m titles.

Bolt became the only man to have retained both individual sprint golds and helped his team become the first to run under 37 seconds in the relay.

His sixth Games gold made him the most decorated Olympic sprinter of all-time.

It is the third time in the past five years he has been given the BBC honour.

“It was a great Olympics, a great year and I worked really hard,” he said.

Bolt triumphed despite hamstring and back problems that had placed his participation in doubt.

After winning the 200m title, he said: “I’m a living legend. I was fast, but I was not fit enough.”

Following the relay victory on the final day of action in the Olympic Stadium, he traded celebrations with Britain’s 5,000m and 10,000m gold medallist Mo Farah.

Double Olympic champion Farah did Bolt’s ‘lightning’ celebration while Bolt mimicked Farah’s ‘Mobot’.
