No.2: Usain Bolt, Jamican sprinter, three gold medals
Usain Bolt declared himself The Greatest after winning a third gold medal at the Rio Olympics, and completing the triple-triple of three gold medals in each of three consecutive Olympic Games.
With Justin Rose winning gold as well, Hublot could not be happier with its podium of sporting legends.
“Usain and Justin have left their mark on the games in Rio with their accomplishments and written a new page of sporting history. They are the kind of achievements that the rest of the world can only dream of and be inspired by. The whole planet is in awe of their efforts. We are extremely proud to have them in the Hublot family,” said Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO Hublot.
Hublot launched a watch on the opening day of the Olympics to celebrate its association with Mr Bolt. The Big Bang Unico Usain Bolt is crowned in gold. Released in two limited editions – a 45 mm Big Bang case cut from 3N yellow gold or black ceramic – the seconds of its chronograph flyback count the time under the impulse of a hand shaped like a lightning bolt. The design features touches of green and gold, and a silhouette of the Jamaican flag adorns the strap. A lightning bolt silhouette is emblazoned across the sapphire case-back that covers the in-house UNICO movement. A symbol of victory to sport on the wrist.
