Olympic gold medalist, Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt

Olympic gold medalist and fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt has another accomplishment to add to his list — Most Influential Man of 2012!   In an online survey by, the Jamaican sprinter was voted the second most influential man for 2012, second only to the infamous fictional character, James Bond.

Bolt, beat out the likes of President Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Prince William!!   I, for one, am very impressed!

The poll asked of its readers (17 million per month!), who made the greatest impact and helped to shape what it means to be a man in 2012.  Rounding out the top five of the poll were Former US President Bill Clinton; creator of the popular Family Guy animated series, Seth MacFarlane; and actor/director, Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Given that James Bond isn’t even a real person, I would say that Usain Bolt should just claim the title of Most Influential Man of 2012!  Gwan Usain, you run tings…(pun intended).

RCS SIDEBAR:  Kanye West is on the list at #31 and is the only man to have made the list each year since the poll began seven years ago!

1.     James Bond
2.     Usain Bolt
3.     Bill Clinton
4.     Seth MacFarlane
5.     Joseph Gordon-Levitt
