Jamaica’s Usain Bolt, eight-time Olympic champion and holder of the title of “world’s fastest man,” returned to the track as a participant in Expo 2022 in Dubai on November 13, 2021. The event was a part of the commitment of PepsiCo to make sports and wellness available and accessible to all people. “Run the World,” a family-run of 1.45 kilometers in which Bolt will participate is designed to raise funds for the Al Noor Rehabilitation and Welfare Association for People of Determination. The event is open to people of all ages and abilities, but they must register online for free. Bolt also participated in a meet-and-greet event at the Gatorade Bolt Pavilion in the Mobility District.
