Please give Usain Bolt Honorary British Knighthood

This petition had 58 supporters

I believe Great Britain should give an Honorary Knighthood to the fastest man in the world Usain Bolt. Usain is a living legend, and the greatest sprinter of all time, a great human being full of charisma who has done so much for athletics, his country, and raising the bar in the sport he love. Mr Bolt enjoy giving back which he does through his many charitable foundations he also support two of his former schools, Waldensia Primary in Sherwood Content, Trelawny and Alma Mater William Knibb Memorial High in Martha Brae also in Trelawny. Usain have contributed immensely to athletics, have motivated and inspired a generation of young people (even Prince Harry) in Great Britain especially when he trained and raced at the London 2012 Olympic.

Honorary Knighthoods are to recognise non-British citizens who have made major contributions to this country and its well-being. As his website state: Arguably the most naturally gifted athlete the world has ever seen, Usain St Leo Bolt, created history at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio when he achieved the ‘Triple Triple’, three gold medals at three consecutive Olympic Games. Usain’s journey to worldwide stardom started at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing where he won the 100m, 200m and 4x100m, all in world record times. He followed this up with three gold medals in the same events at the 2012 Olympic Games in London to write his name in the history books as the world’s fastest man. Then one day before his 30th birthday he completed the same triple at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio to cement his legacy as a legend in world sport. I believe Usain Bolt is the perfect recipient, and it is only fitting that this country awarded him one.

I urge, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan the Prime Minister Theresa May and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to make this happen. Usain Bolt loves the UK and have done great work here.

This living legend has received many major awards and high honours worldwide - I believe it's time the UK honoured him too. Please sign to win the amazing Usain Bolt an Honorary Knighthood in the UK.
