Minnie Dlamini Jones is no stranger to living the high life and rubbing shoulders with some of the world’s most elite celebrities, but on a recent trip to France she met her hero, Usain Bolt.
The media personality and the Olympic athlete are both ambassadors for GH Mumm and they had a chance to meet up in Reims, France for a once in a life time experience.
Minnie and Usain joined a flight crew in a zero-gravity simulator for an event promoting the luxury brand’s champagne.
Minnie is a huge fan of the athlete and managed to snap a picture of the two of them. In the caption, she couldn’t stop gushing about Usain and how lucky she was to spend some time with him.
Briefly.co.za learned that Minnie was absolutely ecstatic to have the opportunity to try out the simulator, but she was more excited to drink bubbly in zero-gravity.
She took to Instagram to share a video with her followers just before they took flight and she captured the moment that they began to float for the first time.
Usain Bolt couldn’t sit still and began racing from one side of the simulator to the other as soon as they lost gravity.
Minnie was a little apprehensive at first, but she soon began to enjoy herself.
The Daily Sun reports that some of the crew members challenged Usain to a race in zero-gravity and of course, he accepted.
It took some time for Usain to get used to running in the unusual conditions, but he still managed to emerge victorious.
