Legacy of Usain Bolt: Candidates with Potential to Replace the Legend

Usain Leo Bolt is a Jamaican resigned sprinter and world record holder in the 100 meters, 200 meters and 4×100 meters race. His reign as an Olympic Games champion, in all of the aforementioned events, spans to three Olympics.

Previously, Bolt had effectively trained with Borussia Dortmund, Mamelodi Sundowns FC and Strømsgodset, and now he will join the domestic Australian team, Central Coast Mariners.

Usain Bolt seemed very excited as he said:

I am very excited about coming to Australia and would like to thank the owner and management of the Central Coast Mariners for giving me this opportunity

It has been my dream to play professional football and I know that it will involve a lot of hard work and training to get to the level required to play and make an impact in the A-League.

Both Bolt and the Central Coast Mariners have been in talks for quite some time, with the 8 time Olympic gold medallist, quite interested to take football as his new profession.

While the preparation time frame does not accompany a certification of an agreement, it is a brilliant possibility for Bolt to demonstrate his value.
