Prince Harry prepares to race Usain Bolt at the Usain Bolt Track at the University of the West Indies on March 6, 2012 in Kingston, Jamaica

*Stopping in Jamaica as part of a celebration for Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee, Prince Harry of Wales went head-to-head with Usain Bolt, a.k.a. the World’s Fastest Man, in a race at the University of the West Indies stadium in Kingston.

Harry won – only because the royal tricked Bolt at the starting line and got a huge head start.

The reigning Olympic 100m champ laughed and went jogging after Harry, who sprinted across the finish line first place.

“He cheated,” the Jamaican-born runner joked to the BBC afterward. “I said we would have a rematch in London 2012, and Harry said, ‘I’m busy.’ ”

To mark his grandmother’s 60th anniversary on the throne, Harry is set to meet with Jamaican Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller later today on a tour that has so far taken him to Belize, the Bahamas and Brazil.
