According to Minister Grangethe statue, will be placed at Statue Park at the National Stadium in Kingston, however, there are plans to place a replica of the sculpture at another location.

“Traditionally, when we celebrate the athletes’ achievements, we usually, over the last few years, plan the event for Heritage Week,” the minister said. “Of course, in consultation with Usain Bolt’s management, we came to the understanding that he will be available for that weekend, because there’s the run (Jamaica National Foundation 4K and 10K Walk/Run event) on the Sunday (October 15), and we’ll do the unveiling on the Friday (October 13)” Grange said.
