As an army helicopter pilot, Prince Harry may really fly. But he’ll need more than wings if he wants to challenge the fastest man in the world to a race.
Harry, 27, reportedly wants to run against champion sprinter Usain Bolt, the world-record holder in the 100 meters, in a practice session when he visits Jamaica on an official tour next month.
The sporty prince, who, like the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, is an ambassador to the British teams for this summer’s Olympic Games in London, hopes to visit Bolt at his rudimentary training track in Kingston for the showdown, according to a report.
