Usain Bolt par Dimitri Iundt

In the spring of 2011, L’Équipe magazine sent Dimitri Iundt, a photographer, and Stéphane Kohler, a reporter, to Jamaica to document Usain Bolt’s preparation. The reigning world and Olympic champion was preparing for the upcoming World Championships, scheduled for the following summer in Daegu, South Korea. Unfortunately, he would be disqualified in the final for a false start.

Bolt’s training and stretching sessions took place in the early hours of the morning to avoid the intense Jamaican heat. The report captures the intensity and rigor of the preparation of the world’s fastest sprinter.
