The 2016 Olympics in Rio have been riddled with issues and problems. From zika to questionable facilities to Russia’s doping scandal you wonder if they should have just taken this year off and tried again in 2020.
But it’s still the Olympics and of course there are still stories to be excited about. One big one is the return of Usain Bolt, the world’s fastest man. 29 year old Bolt has had a dissapointing year due to injuries, but he says he’s back better than ever. This summer Bolt is vying to become the first athlete ever to win gold in the 100, 200 and 400 relay in 3 straight Olympic games.
To get folks excited for Bolt’s efforts in the games, Gatorade created a fun and creative 7-minute animated short that takes us through the story of the world’s fastest man.
Fun idea by Gatorade and fun video to watch with the kids to get them excited for the 2016 Olympics.
