“No matter what’s going on right now, Jamaica is my country, and that will never change,” Bolt declared. “I will always love my country and will do everything in my power to uplift this country no matter what’s going on.”
Bolt has been an active advocate for Jamaica, using his platform as a world-class athlete to promote the country’s culture and heritage.
He has also been involved in several business ventures, including a restaurant, and he has been named a global ambassador for the sport of athletics. Despite the financial losses, Bolt remains committed to supporting Jamaica and its people.
