The 3-year-old Thoroughbred Usain Colt, named after the world’s fastest man, is being lined up for several races in Britain this summer, and his owners hope Usain Bolt will meet his equine namesake while he is in London for the Olympics, according to USA Today.

While the runner is aware of the horse’s existence, trying to schedule an appointment with the three-time Olympic champion and 100-meter world record holder is proving difficult, however. Bolt has been training in seclusion on a track at the University of Birmingham, a facility surrounded by thick bushes and patrolled by security.
