Usain Bolt “raced” against a motorcycle taxi and beat him. The retired Olympic multi-champion ran around 50 meters on a capital’s boardwalk facing the South Pacific, before the gaze of half a thousand people. The mototaxi, a popular three-wheeled vehicle used as a means of transportation by Peru’s working class in poor areas, was relegated and reached the finish line shortly after the renowned athlete in the peculiar race on a motorway in a classy neighborhood high of the Peruvian capital.
The Jamaican star arrived in the country at the invitation of a sports brand and will carry out other activities in Lima this Wednesday. Bolt arrived from Chile, where he met with the president of that country, Sebastián Piñera.
Bolt, 32, retired after the 2017 World Athletics Championships in London. He was crowned in the 100 and 200 meters, as well as in the 4x100m relays at the 2008, 2012 and 2016 Olympics, although he would later lose the 2008 relay gold due to a teammate being disqualified for testing positive in an anti-doping test.
