Now that sprinter Usain Bolt has done what he came for at the Rio Olympics this year as rumors are swirling that Bolt is also looking to tie the knot with his girlfriend that would complete his run for greatness.
The 30-year old Jamaican sprinter told everyone in Rio that this would be his last Olympics as he has nothing left to prove to anyone. Bolt retires from competing in the Olympics with a bang after completing his triple-triple feat after taking the gold in the 4×100 meter relay. Coming to the Olympics, Bolt made sure that he would keep his title in the 100 and 200-meter dash.
With retirement plans in the making, Bolt looks beyond life at the track and field with hopes of settling down with his girlfriend Kasi Bennett. Bolt’s sister, Christine Bolt-Hylton, spilled all the beans with The Sun and explained that his brother and Bennett have been dating three years now and have kept their relationship “private.”
She narrates that Bolt told her that he wanted to start a family one day and that with the way she sees him with Bennett, they are a match. Christine added there is a possibility Bolt would propose when he comes home from the Olympics and could not wait for Bennett to be part of their family.
“They like the same music, the same food and doing the same things together and it makes sense for them to get together. I’ve talked to Usain about starting a family and he says he wants to, and I’m sure he will now he’s achieved so much,” She said.

Truly Bolt has achieved so much. With his performance in Rio, he joins the elite club of athletes who managed to win gold medals in three consecutive Olympics. Bolt won the gold medals in the 100, 200-meter dash and recently the 4×100 meter relay. It was the same events wherein he won the gold medals back in the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympic Games.
Now that he is set to retire, it is time for Bolt to take care of his personal life and be able to father a future sprinter who would take on his name and take the same path as he did. Just like as he said, there is nothing more to prove in the sport which he has brought to great heights. Bolt has achieved his goals and that is to put his name on the level of greatness with boxing legend Muhammad Ali and Pele.
