Digicel confirmed that superstar sprinter Usain Bolt — who is ‘Digicel’s Chief Speed Officer’ — will be visiting Bermuda next Tuesday June 26th where he will appear in the Digicel store and also meet with school students at the National Sports Center.
“In 2004 Usain Bolt set his first world record at the CARIFTA Games in the World Junior 200m at the National Stadium and this month Digicel’s chief speed officer is coming back to where it all started for him,” the company said.
“As a result Bermuda has a direct affinity with the eight-time Olympic gold medal-winner and no doubt will be looking forward to the opportunity to meet him.
“Thanks to Digicel Fibre you can do just that. The islands super-fast, reliable fibre internet provider is running a competition for one lucky winner to have a personal meet-and-greet with Bolt plus win signed merchandise. See www.digicelbermuda.com for full details.
Bolt will be appearing in Digicel’s store next Tuesday June 26th where he will sign autographs and pose for photos with fans.
“Usain Bolt is Digicel’s Chief Speed Officer and the face of our Fibre Internet and TV so we’re absolutely thrilled to have him return to Bermuda – back to where it all started for him,” said Nigel Taylor, Digicel Fibre Marketing Manager
“We know he’s excited too as it will bring back great memories and no doubt he’ll get the warm welcome Bermuda is famous for. We wanted to ensure there is a big community element to his return and that’s why he’ll be meeting school children at the National Stadium to hopefully motivate the next generation of Bermudian athletes.”
