Basseterre, St. Kitts – Wednesday 21st July 2021. The world’s fastest man and eight-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt is giving his verdict on the “stars of tomorrow” in run up to the Tokyo games and sports fans might be in for a surprise.
In a cute viral video to celebrate the start of the 2020 games, Usain teamed up with Caribbean sports broadcaster SportsMax to cast a critical eye over the talent-packed field in the first-ever National Baby Trials. And fresh from his own recent dose of baby fever with the arrival of his twins bringing his brood to three and giving him the inside track on all things baby-related , Usain was only too happy to talk toddler track triumphs and tantrums.
“A golden performance” and “you’ve just seen the gold medalists of tomorrow” were just some of the stand out comments with the Digicel Chief Speed Officer full of glowing feedback on the toddler athletes competing for glory.
Jaw dropping athletic action, nail biting knife edge finishes, the frustration of failure, emotional meltdowns and unadulterated joy coupled with a healthy helping of showboating – the baby contenders brought it all when they touched the track.

SportsMax will be bringing all of the action from Tokyo to sports fans across the Caribbean region via its mobile app.
