    Welcome to the forum.

    Please note that thread titles should include some/all of the words/phrases you are querying. I have changed the title for you this time. Out of curiosity, why was your original title to do with being in a hurry? What's the rush?

    "and should i use capital on bolt , august?."

    All "proper nouns" are capitalized in English. Names of people and things, etc.

    Let's hope the OP wasn't in a huge hurry because this is homework.

    My preference is:

    Usain Bolt was born on August 21, 1986.

    Using "21st" isn't really wrong, I just don't care for it in this form.

    21st is fine in British English in this form, though 21 works too.
