There is life after the sprint. Former athletic sensation Usain Bolt ‘32 in the meantime’ is on the other side of the world as a professional football player. The Jamaican is working at Central Coast Mariners in Australia and scored today at his first base place. “I have a very good feeling about this”, Bolt reacted.
The first matchday in the A-League is a few weeks away, but in the preparation for the new Australian football season, none other than Usain Bolt has shown himself. The Jamaican scored his first base for his club, the Central Coast Mariners. Bolt took the leather against South West United on speed and then scraped the keeper with a hard kick in the short corner. Handsome from the world record holder on the 100-meter sprint.
A few minutes later, Bolt scored a second time. His second goal was the quick attacker after a clumsy misunderstanding between defender and goalkeeper. The former sprinter celebrated his goals in his usual way. Bolts bitch did, however, create another remarkable statistic. In 75 minutes of football he was good for as many goals as successful passes.
“I am happy that I can show the world that I am making progress”, Bolt said afterwards. “At my first base, I score two goals, nice. I am very happy to be a Mariner. I am working hard to get a place in the team.”
