TRIPLE Olympic gold medallist Usain Lightning Bolt gave his thanks to Brunel University after the Jamaican relay team smashed the world record with its performance in the mens 4x100m relay on Saturday.
After winning the race, sprinter Bolt said in an interview for BBC television: "Brunel is awesome. The university has really done great for us.
"That's the spot where we come every summer, tha'ts where we stay, and they really show us a lot of love."
Bolt, the 100 and 200-metre world record holder, has been hailed as a legend by fellow athletes and sports commentators, but he did not forget his supporters at the university in the appropriately name Kingston Lane, Uxbridge Kingston being the capital of Jamaica.
The Jamaican athlete has trained at the university several times.
Following his unbeatable performances during London 2012 there is debate as to whether Bolt should quit while he is ahead, or train to defend his gold medals at the Olympics in Rio in 2016.
But after the Jamaican relay performance, the worlds fastest man spoke only of thanks for his supporters at Brunel.
"We get a lot of support from everybody there so thank you guys, it really means a lot."
