This week’s Top Spot is an animated short film about world class sprinter Usain Bolt, telling his unlikely success story which is contributed to by a mom who advises him to “keep it light” and to let his joyful personality shine through. He overcomes his fears and the pressures of performance to ultimately become the fastest man in the world, an apropos tale with the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro coming up.

Titled The Boy Who Learned to Fly, which is based on true events, this short was co-directed by Limbert Fabian and Jake Wyatt of Moonbot Studios.
