THE accolades continue to pile up for Usain Bolt, who has been listed as one of Forbes Magazine’s impressive 30 under 30 sports personalities of 2012.

Bolt, who repeated his triple Olympic wins in London last summer, made the annual list alongside many other sports stars under the age of 30 years.

The 26-year-old athlete, who holds both sprint and sprint relay world records, has a US$9 million ($832 million) contract with sponsor Puma, in addition to several other lucrative deals.

Others who made the list include American gymnast Gabrielle Douglas, basketballer LeBron James and tennis star Caroline Wozniacki.
