Olympic Gold Medalist Usain Bolt set to join Australian Soccer Team
#1
8-Time Olympic Gold Medalist
Usain Bolt set to join
Australian Soccer Team.

Usain Bolt has agreed to join an Australian
Soccer Team in the Nation’s Top Division,
the Central Coast Mariners.


Usain Bolt is a Jamaican sprinter and world
record holder, he is an eight-time Olympic
Gold Medalist. He is also the most successful
Athlete of the World Championships.

“The deal between the Mariners and Usain
Bolt, in principle, has been agreed, subject
to a couple of benchmarks, namely a trial
and, of course, some marquee funds
support from the FFA [Australian Football
Federation],” agent Tony Rallis said in a
radio interview.

“They understand that he has to go
through six weeks of a trial.”

The eight-time Olympic champion Bolt has
long harbored dreams of playing pro
soccer.

Since retiring last summer, the 31-year-old
Jamaican has trained alongside club teams
in South Africa, Jamaica and Norway, plus
had a much-publicized visit with Borussia
Dortmund in March. Bolt and Dortmund
share an apparel sponsor in Puma.

“This bloke’s an ambitious athlete,” Rallis
said. “You know, the A-League needed a
hero, and we got Superman. … If he’s
competitive, he will lift our A-League profile,
he will create dreams of young people and
he will give the A-League a profile no
amount of money can buy,”

His achievements as a sprinter have earned
him the media nickname “Lightning Bolt”,
and his awards include the IAAF World
Athlete of the Year, Track & Field Athlete of
the Year, and Laureus World Sportsman of
the Year (four times). Bolt retired after the
2017 World Championships, when he
finished third in his last solo 100m race.
