By Dialogo April 04, 2013 In an exclusive interview with FAB TV, Usain Bolt said that the initiative of the project is very important for motivating other children to get involved with sports because they see each other’s progress and become even more dedicated. “When many children get together, there is a mix of various talents and they can grow to become great athletes,” said Bolt.

The CDA athletics field was busy with the presence of the Jamaican star. The project’s young participants welcomed Bolt. He was very friendly and caring towards the fans, answering questions, taking photos, and giving out autographs., the youth attend classes from Monday through Friday at the UNIFA. Additionally, the project provides physical therapy, psychological, educational and nutritional support. For the trainer and creator of the project, Brazilian Olympic medalist Arnaldo de Oliveira, the visit from a fellow Olympic medalist such as Usain Bolt enhances the project, because it inspires the young athletes to train and seek opportunities through sports. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for these young people. Bolt is very successful in the sport. Aside from showing the benefits and possibilities of sports, we also encourage education because they complement one another. There is an instructor who examines the children’s report cards. They must be enrolled in school and have good grades to be able to join the training,” concluded Arnaldo. The world’s greatest sprinter, Olympic champion Usain Bolt visited the Brazilian Air Force University (UNIFA), in Rio de Janeiro, on March 28, for the Future Olympic Project. The project was developed to promote the practice of sports to the youth in the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. The project currently serves approximately 140 underprivileged children and adolescents with support from the Air Force Sports Committee (CDA), at the UNIFA, where the track that the children train on is located.
