Usain Bolt revealed for L´Equipe how ended his javelin bet at the Rio Olympics. It happened in Rio the evening after his last gold medal, in the movie Im Bolt pictures from his throw are included, but what was the result?
“Yes, it was a gamble! With my team, we made a bet during the season. Some said I was able to throw a javelin more than 50 meters. Others, on the contrary, like Ricky and NJ, did not believe in it. So we organized a bet with Ricky, NJ and my masseuse. My masseuse bet on 60 meters. That’s what I bet on. In the end, I threw 56 meters, I think. So I won two bets and I lost one. It’s not bad performance, but I had so much pain on my arm after that!”
