Bolt's favourite teacher

BBC Assembly about the world's fastest man.

What do you think you would need to do to become the fastest runner in the world?

Do you think you need all the latest equipment, like expensive new trainers? Do you think you would need to train in a stadium?

Usain Bolt knows what it takes because he's the fastest runner in the world. At the Beijing Olympics in 2008 he ran 100m in 9.69 seconds. That is faster than most cars.

Usain was brought up in Jamaica in the Caribbean. He went to an ordinary day school and trained on the school's dusty playing field. He did not have lots of hi-tech equipment but he did have talent, dedication and people that cared about him.

As well as running, he loved playing cricket and wanted to be a cricketer when he was very young.

This film visits Usain's school to see how other people, including his PE teacher, helped him become the world's fastest man.
