One year before millions watched him secure a record third 100 meter gold medal at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Usain Bolt lined up at a very different track in Rio. It was a Thursday in April 2015 and the Jamaican ran the red track that is the pride of Mangueira, where young athletes from the favela, or slum, of 15,000 people train and dream. In a city reviled for its inequality and where the $12 billion spent on the Olympics are said to have done little to help the poor, Bolt's visit is a small example of the legacy Rio's Games might still have for aspiring athletes.
