Bolt unveils 12-ft Berlin Wall gift at JDF

WORLD phenom Usain Bolt on Wednesday unveiled his German gift of a piece of the Berlin Wall at the military museum of the Jamaica Defence Force. His piece of the wall, for long a symbol of division in Germany, but since dismantled, represents the hope of peace and was in recognition of Bolt's exploits at last year's Berlin World Championships, when the 6ft-5in Jamaican broke the world record in the 100m (9.58sec) and 200m (19.19sec).
