Madame Tussauds has honored Jamaican runner Usain Bolt with a new wax figure that was recently unveiled in London. Portrayed in his trademark “To Di World” pose, Bolt’s figure is as dynamic and striking as the athlete himself.
“The reaction to Usain’s figure has been fantastic and he makes a really dynamic addition to the sports area” said General Manager Meike Schulze. “We’re sure we’ll be getting plenty more fans in over the next week or so wanting to wish him well. So if you haven’t got tickets to the 100m, there’s still an opportunity to get a really close encounter with Bolt right here at Madame Tussauds.”
In London, Bollt’s wax figure will be displayed in the newly revamped interactive sports zone alongside other Olympians past and present from Team GB’s Jessica Ennis and Tom Daly to legends like Muhammad Ali and Jesse Owens.
