Usain Bolt Sprints Into Madame Tussauds
Hot on the heels of the unveiling of Olympic hopeful Tom Daley’s dramatic diving figure, we can announce that the next Olympian to be honoured with a place here at Madame Tussauds London is Jamaican running sensation, Usain Bolt.
The figure will join the interactive sports zone before the competition kicks off in July and will make a dynamic addition portrayed in his trademark “To Di World” pose.
Work is already well underway and the figure will join champion diver Daley and his team GB mate heptathelete Jessica Ennis, as well as a host of sporting legends past and present – from Jesse Owens and Mohammed Ali to Ronaldo and Beckham.
We are very excited to confirm Bolt’s inclusion in time for the big Event this summer. There has been such positive feedback to our British Olympians, Jessica Ennis and Tom Daley, we’re confident sporting fans are going to love the latest international addition to the area.
The figure will be in a fun and dramatic pose, paying tribute to a five time world and three time Olympic Champion. Bolt will be defending his record breaking Olympic titles this summer so it’s perfect timing and a great opportunity for our guests to get up close to one of the most talked about sports personalities of the moment.
