Prince Harry Dares To Challenge Olympian Usain Bolt To Race

IT'S ON.

Looks like Prince Harry’s ready to give an Olympic champ a run for his money. 

The royal recently tweeted at Jamaican runner Usain Bolt, wishing him a happy 30th birthday along with a playful little challenge in reference to their race in Jamaica, Bolt’s home country, back in 2012. 

The runner, who has three gold medals under his belt from Rio, was obviously game. 

Though 30-year-old Bolt may be considered the GOAT, he is probably looking to redeem himself since his last match-up with the Prince, who had visited Jamaica on a tour to celebrate the Queen’s then-60 years on the throne.

Harry actually “won” that race against the runner at the University of the West Indies stadium when he sprinted following a false start, BBC News reported. 

We suspect the Prince won’t get so lucky next time.
