Usain Bolt and PUMA host track and field clinic at Mt SAC
On Tuesday, September 27th, PUMA athlete and world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt, ventured out to Mount San Antonio College in Walnut, California to treat some of today’s young athletes to advice and tips on how to get faster, be the best they can be and most importantly – have fun.
Talking to a crowd of over 1000 college and high school athletes, kids, young fans and locals, Usain dazzled the crowd with his humor and free spirit, but also seriously talked about what its like to be an athlete today – including what types of exercises, stretches and drills he does with his coach. Not only did he talk about the right things to do on the track, but also demonstrated with a few drills himself. Bolt coached young athletes about starting techniques and afterwards cheered kids on as PUMA and Mt SAC tested who was the fastest kid on the track with PUMA’s own Faas Test, where we measure the speed of a runner by MPH in 100 meters.
After the clinic, Usain met with young fans, conducted interviews with national news media. Usain will continue his US visit in Los Angeles with interviews and appearances with major national media outlets.
PUMA is a sponsor of Mount San Antonio College track and field as a supporter of young and emerging athletes and talent and will work with Mt SAC to present the Mt SAC XC Invitational in October.
