The renowned racing athlete Usain Bolt has applied to trademark a picture of himself with his arms crossed and pointing upward. According to the application, which Bolt submitted to the USPTO (the United States Patent and Trademark Office) last week, he intends to use the logo in sports bars, restaurants, as well as on apparel, jewellery, and shoes.
According to the filing, the trademark depicts a silhouette of a man with one arm raised and pointing upward and the other bent and pointing to the head in a “distinctive position.” The Jamaican sprinter, who won eight Olympic gold medals at the Beijing, London, and Rio Games, continues to hold the 100- and 200-meter world records. He broke them throughout an exceptionally successful career.
Usain Bolt, eight times Olympic gold medalists retired from athletics in 2017
Bolt, 36, who retired from athletics in 2017, briefly pondered a career in professional football before proclaiming his “sports life over” in January 2019. Earlier, admirers posted on Twitter to recall the occasion when he broke the record for the quickest 200-meter time ever. On August 20, 2009, he accomplished this achievement. At the 2009 World Championships in Berlin, he set a fast time of 19.19 seconds.
In the same competition, Usain Bolt also established the fastest 100-meter time, covering the distance in an unmatched 9.58 seconds. Regardless, Bolt will be considered one of the greatest sprinters of all time, and it will truly take a miracle to find someone that will be able to beat him.
