Usain Bolt enters space race in zero-gravity sprint
Bolt briefly broke off from his pursuit of a professional football career with Australia's Central Coast Mariners to travel to France for the event
Paris: Jamaican sprint legend Usain Bolt was back on the starting line on Thursday — but found it a challenge to stay on his feet in zero-gravity conditions aboard an aeroplane.
Bolt briefly broke off from his pursuit of a professional football career with Australia's Central Coast Mariners to travel to France for the event. Dressed in a spacesuit, Bolt was aboard a zero-gravity Airbus as part of an event sponsored by a champagne brand.
The plane performed a series of parabolas as Bolt and two other guests experienced a phase of weightlessness for 22 seconds, time for a race to be staged within the cabin.
