While some NFL players are kneeling at games in protest, apparently against alleged police brutality, it is refreshing to note that some non-Americans have great respect for the Star Spangled Banner, such as Jamaica's Usain Bolt, who even stopped an interview with a reporter and turned to listen and honor the national anthem.
During the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, Bolt, an eight-time Olympic gold medalist in sprinting, was interviewed by Spain's Television Espanola. As they were talking, the national anthem began and Bolt stopped the interview, turned around, and listened as the anthem played.
Usain "Lightning" Bolt, 31, lives in Kingstown, Jamaica. He retired from sprinting in August 2017. Bolt was selected for the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) award in 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2016. Because of his incredible record-breaking achievements over the years, Usain Bolt is considered one of the greatest sprinters of all time.
Bolt is a Catholic who makes the sign of the Cross before each race and he wears the Miraculous Medal as a sign of his faith.
