WORLD sprint sensation Usain Bolt last week received a cheque of $8.9 million from a Digicel, his local sponsors. Shelly-Ann Fraser, world women’s champion got $1.78 million. The total of $10.68 million were bonuses for their performance in the season that has just ended. This money is not the support that the company provides for Jamaican athletes.

Bolt has been with the company since 2004. Last year, Bolt got $1.8 million, from the same company after trimming the 100m record to 9.72 seconds in New York.

Bolt’s bonus (from Digicel alone in 2009) is about N1.39 billion, more money that the entire Nigerian contingent had for the 2008 Olympic Games in Peking (Beijing) China.

It is still good to note that the Nigerian athletes do not receive adequate funding and support.
