Posted on 31st October 2017

At the Olympic Stadium in August this year, Usain Bolt lined up for a 100m race that was to bring the curtain down on his incredible career. After all he has achieved he will go down in history as a winner. Yet, for all his success in the past, that evening turned out not to be about winning (he finished third) but more about ending well, setting himself up for his life after athletics. Even amidst the pain and disappointment, his actions in defeat demonstrated to the world that whatever happened that evening he planned primarily to end that chapter of his life well.
