Happy Birthday to Usain Bolt: The Great Athlete of All Time

CNN Travel ranks Jamaica the third coolest nation after rounding out the top 14 of 250 nations.

“There’s more to Jamaicans than reggae, including Rastafarian (the most kick-back religion ever invented),” CNN says. They added that Jamaicans have “an accent that’s the envy of the English-speaking world and the planet’s most distinctive and recognizable hairstyle. Note to backpackers: dreadlocks only cool on actual Jamaicans.”

They also dubbed sprint legend Usain Bolt as the “icon of cool,” for being the Fastest human ever timed and nine-time Olympic Gold medal winner. However, they said what makes Jamaica “not so cool” are its “high murder rate and widespread homophobia”.
