Young Usain Bolt Learns to Fly in This Gorgeously Animated Film

Leading up to the Rio games, Gatorade and TBWA\Chiat\Day LA have created a beautiful animated short film about the unlikely success story of Jamaican sprinter and world phenom, Usain Bolt, whose joyful personality helped him overcome his fears and the pressures of performance to ultimately become the fastest man in the world. 

The Boy Who Learned to Fly, which is based on true events, was co-directed by Limbert Fabian and Jake Wyatt of Moonbot.
