You are

Usain Bolt

Prefix is a country, but I don't belong to there

Us-, as in U.S., but Usain is from Jamaica.

Infix is the name of a saint

Eh, this one's sketchy. Sain as in saint? I dunno. The "s" was already used for the prefix.

Suffix is a preposition

Last name: It actually symbolizes my character. Be careful! Don't get struck by it...

Bolt, as in lightning bolt? It's definitely symbolic of his speed as a runner.
