KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) - Jamaica is renaming a highway after Usain Bolt, and giving the world's fastest man its highest civic honor.

Prime Minister Bruce Golding says the link between St. Catherine and Clarendon parishes will be renamed Usain Bolt Highway. Golding announced the honor on Tuesday.

It's the same highway where the Jamaican sprinter injured his foot in a car crash this year.

Golding says the government also will bestow Bolt with the Order of Jamaica at October's annual heritage celebration. At 23, Bolt will be the youngest person to ever receive the award.

Bolt has enjoyed another blistering season during which he smashed his own 100 and 200-meter records at the world championships in Berlin last month.
