He is retired from sprinting. He also sponsors Puma and Adidas, as well as having his own range of sporting equipment with Virgin Media. His net worth was valued at US$45 million in 2012 but with endorsements continuing throughout 2016, he is likely to have earned a significant amount since then. In 2013, he took part in Strictly Come Dancing and has become a very popular sports personality in Jamaica where his main source of income comes from advertising and sponsorship. He has appeared on various TV shows including The Graham Norton Show where he won an award for ‘Best Dressed Male’. In addition to his performance at London 2012, Usain was also awarded an Order of Brilliant Star in 2009 for improving Jamaica’s image through sport and its citizens around the world.
Awards and achievements
Olympic gold medallist (100, 200 and 4×100 metre relay) at three consecutive Olympic Games (2004 to 2016). Youngest world record holder for both 100 and 200 metres. In 2009 he was awarded the IAAF World Athlete of The Year. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest sprinters of all time. Forbes estimated that Bolt earned around $30 million in 2008–2009 from prize money, endorsements and appearance fees, but noted that with additional income from commercials (Nike alone pays him $10 million a year), he could be making much more than that.
Keeping it as a civilian, Usain decided to donate some of his time and efforts by working for charities in Jamaica. He started off with promoting anti-littering campaign and also won a bronze medal in track at 2004 CARIFTA Games. He went on to win silver medals at 100 m and 200 m events at 2006 Commonwealth Games held in Melbourne. For every race he ran, he donated $100 to Jamaican Institute of Sports and received an award from Sportsworld magazine for champion of champions for charitable works that year. In 2007, he was awarded with an honorary doctorate degree from University of Technology (UTech) in Jamaica for his role as an ambassador in sports.
Bolt announced in June 2018 that he would retire from athletics after World Championships held in London. He said he wanted to make it a memorable farewell by winning his final race, claiming another gold medal and breaking his own world record. When I leave I want to leave people with good memories, he said. However, on August 15, 2018, Usain Bolt retired from athletics without setting new records or winning another medal at the championships stating that although he still had ‘some track running left in me’, it was time for him to bow out on a high note.
Other Sources Income
Apart from being a world-class athlete, Usain Bolt owns several companies under his name. He makes thousands of dollars per appearance and has a slew of endorsements with big companies such as Gatorade and Hublot. His biggest payday came when he signed on with Puma in 2017 to represent their Athletics brand. He reportedly earns $10 million every year through his Puma deal alone!
