Digicel today announced the lucky winners of its latest online top-up competition in which four customers have won a trip for two to Jamaica to meet the World’s Fastest Man and Digicel Brand Ambassador, Usain Bolt.

The winners – Venn Antonio Eustace Gilkes from Barbados; Costin Tarsoaga from Bermuda; Stanford Brown from Jamaica and Stanley Harold Williams from Turks and Caicos – will each take a guest for this trip of a lifetime to meet Usain Bolt.

Lucky winners each receive a trip for two to Jamaica to meet the World’s Fastest Man; Digicel’s online top-up is available on all Digicel websites. For more information, visit

On Friday 21st October, the winners will be flown to Kingston’s Norman Manley airport (or collected from their home in the case of the Jamaican winners) where they will be met and transported to their luxury hotel. On Saturday, they will be taken on an excursion which includes a visit to the Bob Marley museum and Trenchtown – the place where Bob Marley grew up.

On Saturday night, Usain will host the winners at his very own Kingston hot spot restaurant, Tracks and Records, where the winners will enjoy dinner and chat with the man himself.

Jamaican winner, Stanford Brown, said; “I was so excited when I got the call from Digicel to say I had won as it’s the first time I’ve ever won anything. I’m really looking forward to meeting Usain Bolt and to talking to him all about his world record breaking wins – my friend and I are hugely excited about this whole trip.”

The promotion – which ran from September 1st through September 30th – was open to Digicel customers who sent or received online top-up in the Diaspora as well as those in Barbados, Bermuda, Jamaica and Turks & Caicos.

Digicel’s General Manager for the Diaspora, Valérie Estimé, said; “At Digicel, we’re always looking for new and innovative ways to keep those customers connected with their loved ones and this latest online top-up promotion – offering customers a chance of a lifetime to meet Usain Bolt – has done just that.

We would like to congratulate all the winners, we’re delighted to be giving them the opportunity to meet the World’s Fastest Man and Digicel Brand Ambassador, Usain Bolt, and we hope they have a fantastic weekend courtesy of Digicel,” continued Estimé.
