Stefanos Tsitsipas is inspired by Usain Bolt

It’s one final showdown for Formula 1 at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. While Lewis Hamilton is aiming for his eight championship title, Max Verstappen wants to grab his first title in his career. F1 fans like Stefanos Tsitsipas and Usain Bolt have arrived at Abu Dhabi to witness a remarkable contest.

It seems like Tsitsipas went across Bolt, as he penned down an inspirational message for Usain Bolt. ” Usain Bolt has spent only 325 seconds – a little under 6 minutes – on the Olympics track.”

Furthermore, he quoted, ” That means he has picked up a gold medal for every 36 seconds spent on the track, including the qualifying rounds. For those 6 minutes, he trained for 20 years. That’s an investment.”

Usain Bolt is an eight-time gold medalist at the Olympics. Moreover, he’s the most successful sprinter of all time with eleven world championships titles.
