The Richest Jamaican Athlete

Published on March 27 2014

That’s an easy one; it’s definitely the legendary Usain St. Leo Bolt with a net worth of $24.2 million. This 27 year old two-time 100m, 200m and 4x100m Olympic gold medalist has been raking in millions in endorsements and appearance fees. The man is earning himself a cool $9 million for promoting the Puma brand and that’s just one among his many endorsements; he is also promoting Virgin Media, Regupol and Digicel for almost equivalent amounts.  Bolt established the Usain Bolt Foundation that has been involved in numerous charitable causes mostly geared towards bettering the lives of young people in his home country.
