Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt and Puerto Rican model Joan Smalls are featured in Vogue Magazine‘s June 2012 issue for “Cut to the Chase.” Photographed in by Patrick Demarchelier, the five-time World and three-time Olympic gold medalist is trailed by Smalls as a documentary crew tracks his every stride.
He talks about wanting to play professional soccer, fear of ever DJing anywhere in Jamaica (“It’s not like overseas, where you can just enjoy the music and play. In Jamaica, you’ve got to be on key. You gotta know exactly what to do, to get the crowd hyped, or else you will probably get booed.”) and more. Read the full article and check out photos from the feature below.
