Watch Usain Bolt sprint in zero gravity

Usain Bolt is one of the fastest people on the planet—but is he now looking to take that talent beyond this world?

The Jamaican world-record holder took to zero-gravity this week with one of his sponsors, Maison MUMM champagne. That is, in a zero-gravity plane.

The space party was bumping with bottles popping, but Bolt couldn’t miss an opportunity for an out-of-this-world race. So he took on two other passengers in a there-and-back contest sans the normal confines of gravity.

In the race, Bolt’s long legs propelled him off to a great start. He nearly faltered when he tumbled at the turnaround point, as did his competitors. But he managed to recover, and celebrated with his traditional showboating as he floated across the line.

This isn’t the first space related news involving the track star. He and Mo Farah had traditional star constellations named after them when astrologists realised names of zodiac and ancient mythology constellations failed to intrigue children.

Bolt has remained active in his retirement since 2017. His most recent venture involved him debuting for an Australian professional football team in July.
