Football: Usain Bolt Scores A Brace For Australia’s Domestic Club

Usain Bolt

Usain Bolt has scored his first goals for an Australian football club, getting two on his maiden beginning for Central Coast Mariners in a friendly encounter.

The Jamaican eight-time Olympic sprint champ scored the Mariners’ 3rd and 4th goals in a 4-0 prevail upon Macarthur South West and celebrated with his trademark lightning bolt style.

For his opening goal, Usain Bolt kept running on to a chipped ball played by Scotland striker Ross McCormack, held off the incoming defender and struck intensely low past the goalkeeper.

He exploited a cautious misunderstanding for his second, with a Macarthur defemder and goalkeeper crashing to leave Bolt ready to tap in from short proximity.

McCormack, on loan from Aston Villa, headed in the Mariners’ 1st goal in the 8th minute.

The 100 meter and 200 meter world record holder has previously had his training with Borussia Dortmund, South African club Sundowns and Norway’s Stromsgodset.

He resigned from the sport of athletics in 2017 and has since said it would be a “dream” to play football at a professional level.
