Usain Bolt Becomes Global Samsung Ambassador
March 26, 2013
Six-time Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt has become a global endorser for Samsung’s latest camera, the NX300.
The world’s fastest man will appear in adverts whilst promoting Samsung’s NX Junior Photographer campaign, which provides camera equipment and photography lessons to disadvantaged young people.
In an official statement, Samsung said: “Like Usain Bolt, the NX300 camera is super-fast and allows photographers to be part of the front-row action and shoot amazing moments.
“The NX Junior Photographer campaign will see Samsung and Usain Bolt work in partnership to build on the athlete’s natural love of being behind the camera and will see the six-time gold medal-winning Olympian showcase his very own Usain Bolt Foundation to provide equipment and lessons to children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
“Over the coming months, other activities will be launched through the exclusive partnership with Usain Bolt and Samsung for those that like speed.”
Bolt is a keen photographer himself and regularly posts photos on his Twitter and other social media outlets.
