He went on to say that this move will rightfully encourage and motivate many individuals to run for their causes.

The Man Of The Honour Made His Way To The Town & The Fans Were Insane Seeing Him

After the race, the Jamaican runner visited some of his biggest supporters at the Gatorade the Bolt tent. The Mobility District is where you’ll find this location. Fans were urged to learn more about a chance to meet Bolt in person by entering a competition. The same was announced on Gatorade Arabia’s Instagram account. Emirati athlete Hamda Hosani was one of those who joined hands and ran with Bolt. She has a total of 17 Special Olympic medals to her name. Hosani, who suffers from epilepsy, is dedicated to encouraging children to participate in sports. She even encourages others to question their prejudices against differently-abled athletes. Bolt surprised her with a zoom call before his visit. In this manner, he invited her to participate in the race with him. What a priceless moment! Kris Fade, an Australian Lebanese radio personality, host, and musician, joined the run with Bolt to further break the ice.
