LAKE MARY, Florida:

SOUL Electronics and the world's fastest man, Usain Bolt, yesterday announced a branding partnership. The track and field star will be representing the SOUL brand during various events throughout the year and will be a development partner for his own special-edition headphones, scheduled to hit the market this summer.

"Bolt's accomplishments as a three-time Olympic gold medallist showcase what a driven and exceptional person can do when they are motivated and striving for greatness," commented Len Davi, executive director of SOUL Electronics. "He's a perfect representation of what SOUL stands for and an ideal brand ambassador."

In addition to public appearances, the star athlete will be featured in the company's upcoming 'SOUL of Greatness' video series, which is being developed to inspire people worldwide to aim for greatness and achieve their goals.

"I work hard at attaining my goals and, in addition, I always try to inspire others to work hard and attain their dreams," said Bolt. "I am looking forward to working with SOUL to deliver this message.'

SOUL headphone models currently under development with Bolt include a Bluetooth earbud with removable ear-safety hooks for added stability (perfect for an athletic lifestyle) called the RUN FREE and a version of the company's popular SL300 that pays stylish homage to the athlete's home, Jamaica.
