Usain Bolt says, ‘fatherhood harder than breaking a world record’
Jamaican sprint king Usain Bolt who has recently welcomed a baby girl in his family is finding fatherhood ‘harder than breaking a world…
“I got sick that first week as I was scared to fall asleep so I stayed up at nights just watching her,” he said.
Bolt recently posted pictures of his baby daughter for the first time after revealing her name is Olympia Lightning. The Olympic gold medallist, 33, and his partner Kasi Bennett, now 31, welcomed their first child on June 14. Bolt is an 11-time world champion and is also the only athlete to win gold medals in successive three Olympics in 2008, 2012, and 2016
“If my coach came back and told me, let’s do this, I will, because I believe so much in my coach,” Bolt said.
“So I know if he says we’re going to do this, I know it’s possible. Give Glen Mills a call, and I’ll be back.”
Bolt, who last competed internationally at the World Championships in London in 2017 where he won bronze in the 100m, said he does not visit the track any more.
“My coach gets too excited when I come to the track, so I stay away,” he said.
