MIRAMAR, FL – The anticipated visit of Track & Field superstar and multi- decorated Olympian Dr. Usain Bolt, OJ, CD, OLY, to the City of Miramar in South Florida did not disappoint. His visit was the culmination of years of planning for a sculpture of his likeness erected at the Ansin Sports Complex as the first installation of the City’s Art-in-Public-Places initiative.
The brainchild behind commissioning a sculpture of Bolt was Vice Mayor Alexandra P. Davis, who stated, “This statue of Usain Bolt will not only serve as a source of inspiration for our residents, but I believe it will also attract visitors from far and wide. As people come to witness the magnificence of this statue, they will discover the charm and vibrancy of our city, leading to increased tourism and economic opportunities for local businesses. The statue will become a point of pride for our community, a landmark that showcases our commitment to excellence, athleticism, and the celebration of human achievement.”
