Today Usain Bolt was named Laureus World Sportsman of the Year for the second successive time at a star-studded ceremony in Abu Dhabi.
Bolt maintained his complete dominance of men's sprint events in 2009, winning the 100 and 200 meters world titles in Berlin -- both in stunning new world record times -- as well as helping his nation claim gold in the 4x100m relay.

His performances last August mirrored those of 2008, when Bolt announced himself to the world when shattering world records while winning both sprints at the Beijing Olympic Games.

The 23-year-old is now the first man in history to hold the world and Olympic 100 and 200 m titles at the same time -- as well as also securing both world records.

PUMA congratulates Usain on his second consecutive Laureus Sportsman of the Year Award.
