Bolt's favourite teacher

BBC Assembly about the world's fastest man.

Usain Bolt is the fastest man in the world and won two gold medals at the Beijing Olympics in 2008. He can run 100m in 9.58 seconds - that's faster than most cars.

For Usain the long road to Olympic glory began well before the finish line in Beijing.

His athletic talents were spotted by his PE teacher at school in Jamaica. He originally wanted to be a cricketer but was persuaded to switch to athletics at secondary school.

William Knibb is an ordinary Jamaican high school. Pupils still train on the dusty athletics track that Usain used at school.

The school doesn't have lots of sports facilities but it more than makes up for this in attitude. And one of the most important people responsible for the pupils' commitment and attitude is Usain's PE teacher, Lorna Thorpe.

Lorna helped to instil a sense of passion, confidence and discipline in Usain. The passion to want to be better, the confidence to believe that you can be better and the discipline to keep working hard and become better.

The fact Usain has made it to where he is today helps to inspire another generation of young Jamaicans.

This film visits William Knibb School to meet his teacher and find out how Usain's achievements are inspiring a new generation of pupils.
