Usain Bolt Shares Name And First Pictures Of His Baby Daughter

Olympia Lightning Bolt – Usain Bolt

Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt has announced the name of his baby daughter months after she was born.

Bolt, on Tuesday, took to social media to share a series of pictures of his baby daughter Olympia Lightning Bolt as he celebrated his girlfriend Kasi Bennett’s birthday.

“I want to wish my gf @kasi.b a happy birthday and To let u know I am happy I get to spend ur special day with u. I want nothing but happiness for u and will continue to doing my best keeping a smile on ur face,” the retired eight-time Olympic gold medalist said in his Instagram caption.

Bolt added: “Now we have started a new chapter together with our daughter Olympia Lightning Bolt I look forward to what the future will bring for us but be reassured that I will be the ROCK for this family. I Love you and happy 21th birthday”

The 33-year-old in previous interviews has said that he isn’t sure whether he would push any future child of his towards athletics, feeling that their father’s legacy could be too tough a cross to bear.

“That’s going to be hard for my kid,” he said, via the Mail Online. “If they want to do it, I’m fine with it. But initially I’m going to say don’t do it, because I know the pressure that will come along with it.”

Born Usain St Leo Bolt, the Jamaican former sprinter is widely considered to be the greatest sprinter of all time. He is a world record holder in the 100 metres, 200 metres and 4 × 100 metres relay.

An eight-time Olympic gold medallist, Bolt is the only sprinter to win Olympic 100 m and 200 m titles at three consecutive Olympics (2008, 2012 and 2016).
