Walker is the son of Bolt's long-time friend and agent, Nugent 'NJ' Walker. He was born in 2012 at the height of Bolt's powers in sprinting and since then, the two have shared a wonderful relationship on and off the track.

At 11 years of age, the young Walker has already shown signs of taking after his godfather with decent performances in school championships. He recently finished fifth in the games prompting the eight-time Olympic gold medalist to take to Twitter and Instagram to celebrate him.

"Proud of my godson #NJJ. 5th in finals at Prep School championship."

As Essentially Sports reports, Walker is not only talented in sprinting but also in other things like music. Coincidentally, Bolt himself took an interest in the studio after retiring from racing in 2017.

A video on Usain Bolt's official YouTube account has a collaboration between himself and the two Walkers.

Bolt warmly embraces Noah Lyles

Sports Brief has previously reported that Noah Lyles obliterated his fellow competitors to set a new World Lead time this season in the 200-metres race at the Racers Grand Prix on June 3 in Kingston, Jamaica.

The World Champion clocked 19.67 seconds, finishing way ahead of Zharnel Hughes, who came in at 20.14 seconds. Jamaica's Rasheed Dwyer came in third with 20.53 seconds.

Among the fans in Kingston was the legendary Usain Bolt, who stood up to applaud and embrace the World Champion. Bolt is the world record holder, having run 19.19 seconds in the race in 2009.

Ghanaian sprinter performs like Bolt

Sports Brief has also reported that Ghanaian sprinter, Joseph Andoh Kwofie shattered long-standing records in both the 100-metre and 200-metre races at the recent Central Regional Zone 3 Inter Colleges Games, held in Cape Coast.

Despite being a first-year student at Mfantsipim Senior High School in Ghana, the budding athlete left a lasting impact by obliterating records that had remained unbroken for 30 years.

Kwofie delivered an astonishing performance, clocking an impressive time of 10.4 seconds in the 100m race and 20.8 seconds in the 200m race. These remarkable achievements set the stage for what promises to be an exciting and promising professional career.
