Hublot Celebrates Usain Bolt

Usain Bolt wins 100 metres at the Olympics for the third time, fulfilling a third of his triple-triple ambition.

Today, Usain Bolt proves once again that he is the fastest man on earth. The Jamaican sprint king snatched gold at the 100 meters Olympic race, beating main rival Justin Gatlin of the United States. Gatlin, who was temporarily suspended for doping, finished the race in 9.89 seconds. Andre Grasse of Canada finished third in 9.91.

Bolt’s Olympics quest is yet to be over. The sprinter aspires to score triple gold for the third time at Rio, continuing his legacy at Beijing and London Olympics. To complete that, he need to finish victorious at the 200 metres and 4 x 100 metres with the Jamaican relay team.

Currently, Bolt is the holder of three world records: 100 metres (9.58 seconds). 200 metres (19.19 seconds) and 4 x 100 metres (36.84 seconds). The athlete, who is turning 30 on the day of the games’ closing ceremony, said that Rio would be his last Olympics. 

The Big Bag Unico Usain Bolt

Hublot celebrates Bolt’s series of extraordinary achievements with two limited editions. In a 45mm Big Bang case, the second hands of its flyback chronograph movement measure time with a hand shaped like a lightning bolt. Its design tinged with green and gold, and its strap marked with the silhouette of the Jamaican flag, evoke the athlete’s origins. On the sapphire case back that reveals the UNICO manufacture movement, the silhouette of “Lightning Bolt” displays his emblematic victory sign.
