Usain Bolt Worn and Signed Running Spikes
A rare opportunity to own a pair of Usain Bolt worn and signed running spikes. Usain needs no introduction and is arguably the most famous sports person of this millennium and one of the all time greats. Eight Olympic gold medals, the fastest man in history over 100 and 200 metres and a true global icon.
This unique display set includes the worn and signed running spikes, photographs from the iconic moments from Bolts career and a replica gold medal from each of his Olympic wins - Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016.
Beijing 2008 gold medal - 100m and 200m
London 2012 gold medal - 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay
Rio 2016 gold medal - 100m, 200m and 4x100 relay
The running spikes were personally donated by Usain to the "Jamaica 50" charity auction. Jamaica 50 being the celebration of fifty years of independence for Jamaica, an auction was held to raise money for various good causes. The spikes were subject to much media coverage before this auction and described by many media outlets as "Usain Bolts £50,000 running shoes" such is the rarity and value of used and signed Usain Bolt running spikes.
The shoes come without COA but they can be easily recognized as authentic in comparison with images and articles published online. The last two images in gallery are taken from two articles for users to compare. The frame has been renewed.
Provence and links to media coverage and verifying information will be shared with the winning bidder.
Variety, the Children’s Charity, believes that neither disability nor disadvantage should prevent any child or young person from realising their full potential. Our support allows children to gain mobility, get out and about in the community, communicate, learn, play, achieve more independence and develop greater self-esteem.
The pandemic has had a devastating impact on disabled and disadvantaged children across the UK. Many more children are now living in poverty, while the loss of support services has taken a severe toll.
Here at Variety, we have seen the demand for our services soar. At the same time, with live fundraising events now cancelled, our income streams have dwindled, leaving us struggling to help the vulnerable children we work with.
Can you help us change young lives? Whatever support you can afford to offer will be much appreciated. Even the smallest donation will make a difference.
£10 could give a disadvantaged child a memorable outing to the seaside, the circus or the zoo, once social restrictions are lifted.
£20 could fund a harness to provide postural support for a disabled child.
£50 could help us provide sensory equipment for a child with learning disabilities.
£1,000 could fund a specialist car seat to keep a disabled child safe and comfortable.
£5,000 could allow us to purchase a powered wheelchair for a disabled child, allowing them to a live a more independent life.
