Just when we thought PokerStars was over and done with Sports Stars to attract new players to the site. Last week, the world's largest online poker site announced that it has signed eight-time Olympic gold winner Usain Bolt. The signing of Bolt came just weeks after comedian Kevin Hart joined.
"PokerStars is a winner, and I'm happy to join Kevin in helping to bring poker and PokerStars to the masses. It's a challenging game that's fun, social, and competitive, so I'm pleased to be able to introduce it to my fans and to people around the world."
"Usain Bolt is a fierce competitor who pushes his game to the limits," Hollreiser said. "But he's also one of the most-liked athletes in the world. His strong global following and winning personality will help us to introduce poker in a fun, social and fast way."
