To Di World: Track federation launches contest to find best Bolt impersonator

Tired of Tebowing? Usain Bolt has a new idea.

The international track and field federation is looking for the best impression of the Olympic sprint champion's "To Di World" pose, in which he leans back, his right arm cocked and the left extended skyward, pointing both index fingers as if he's about to shoot an arrow into the sky.

Pictures of people "Tebowing" — kneeling in prayer a la quarterback Tim Tebow — went viral during football season.

Bolt introduced his own signature pose to the world at the last Olympics. It has become a key part of his marketing campaign and is even used as the centrepiece of a Jamaican tourism commercial.

To enter the sweepstakes, contestants need to download a picture of their best Bolt pose onto the federation's Facebook contest page.

Bolt will judge the contest and the winner gets a trip for two to the Diamond League meet in Monaco this summer.
