A Bolt move

29 September 2022

The now retired top sprinter Usain Bolt wants to register his famous stance as a trademark. He recently applied to register his world-famous "bow and arrow move" for clothing and shoes in the United States.

Bolt's pose became world famous, after showing it following each victory in the 100 or 200-meter dash. After passing the finish line, he hung back diagonally and made a gesture as if shooting an arrow with a bow.

It is not unusual to register such "signature moves" as a trademark to cash in commercially. A well-known example from the past is Michael Jordan's "jumpman" silhouette for Nike's iconic "Air Jordan" line.
