As of April, 2014, the world’s fastest runner is Jamaican native, Usain Bolt. He is the current holder of the world record for the 100-meter and 200-meter race. He broke the former record at the World Athletics Championships held in Berlin on August 16, 2009.

Usain Bolt was born on August 21, 1986 in Sherwood Content, Jamaica. He became a legend after winning the 100- and 200-meter race in both the 2008 and 2012 Olympics held in Beijing and in London. Bolt is holder of a record of 9.58 seconds for the 100-meter and the 19.19 for the 200-meter race. Because of this, he earned himself the nickname, "Lightning Bolt."
