The fastest British man thinks a ‘spicy’ show will promote sports

  • Hughes predicts Netflix impact
  • Improved fitness for Olympics
  • Acknowledgment from Usain Bolt

Zharnel Hughes, the fastest man in British history, predicts that the “spicy” new track and field series on Netflix will influence the sport similarly to how “Drive to Survive” affected Formula One.

Hughes broke the British 100m and 200m records and won bronze at the world championships in Budapest last year, yet he remains not widely known. However, he believes the sport will be portrayed in a more captivating manner due to the presence of Netflix cameras, which documented the drama and simmering tensions behind the scenes with the world’s best sprinters.

He stated, “I adore the experience I’ve had with them.” “There is certainly a great deal of spice there that will attract people’s attention. Furthermore, it is highly probable that you will encounter opposition concerning the manner in which individuals discuss their race preparations and similar topics.”

“It will without a doubt influence ‘Drive to Survive,'” he asserted. “Netflix enjoys immense popularity.” The world champions were observed by many, but you were unable to witness the warm-up. Unaware of the true nature of events transpiring behind the scenes. Netflix obtained every particle.

“The exposure is tremendous for our sport. It may attract additional attention, which is precisely what we require. Thus, it is a favourable development.”

Pre-Olympic Training and Recognition

As he prepares for the Olympics, Hughes, who trains in Jamaica with Usain Bolt’s former coach Glen Mills, believes he is in better condition at this time of year compared to last year.

He stated, “My fitness is considerably better than it was last season, and the workload has certainly increased.” “Coach, I’m inquiring, ‘Are you attempting to murder me?'” He is merely indicating that the task is about to commence. Consequently, I have faith in his methodology, and thus far, everything has transpired satisfactorily.”

“Take a step towards financial freedom – claim your free Webull shares now!”

Additionally, Hughes disclosed that Bolt had recently commended him on his accomplishments in 2023. “During a FaceTime call with a friend, he interrupted me,” he explained. “He said, ‘Yo Zharnel, I noticed you, man; keep up the good work; I’m glad to see you succeeding; so congratulations, man.’ It was essentially a brief conversation in which he wished me well and wished me well in life.”

Hughes was less forthcoming regarding the turmoil at British Athletics, which has resulted in the dismissal of technical director Stephen Maguire when he spoke at an event hosted by Vita Coco.

“I cannot offer much commentary on the matter as I am not affiliated with British Athletics,” he explained. “I am entirely concentrating on my profession. Concerning what is occurring behind the scenes, that will require their attention. My complete attention is devoted to the 2024 Paris Olympics.”
