Bolt renews Puma contract


Share post:

Six-time Olympic sprint gold medalist Usain Bolt has renewed his endorsement contract with sportswear maker Puma until after the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro. The 27-year-old reigning Olympic champion and world record holder over 100 and 200 metres has been training and competing in Puma gear for a decade. Neither Germany-based Puma nor Bolt’s management team would disclose financial details of the partnership. Last year, Forbes magazine said Bolt’s previous Puma deal, signed in 2010, was worth nine million dollars annually, a sum it described as “astronomical” for a track athlete. Jamaica’s Bolt, victorious over 100 and 200 meters at the World Athletics Championships in Moscow last month said he would retire from athletics after the 2016 Olympics. But last week he said he was reconsidering the decision. (Jamaica Gleaner)
