Usain Bolt’s mother had made the whole world laugh when she insisted that she simply wanted him to settle down after his retirement, but it seems like the record breaker is indeed speeding towards holy matrimony.
The sprinting star’s sister hinted at the possibility in an interview when she said that “There’s a very strong possibility they’ll get engaged when he comes home”.
The second individual being referred to by the ‘they’ in that statement is Bolt’s two years girlfriend Kasi Bennett. The two had been in a private relationship for over two years but Bolt revealed their relationship in January when he announced that he was off the market and in a steady relationship.
Twenty-six-year-old Kasi Bennett who was in South America for the duration of the Olympic Games did not fail to celebrate each of her boyfriend’s wins on social media with great excitement.
Along with the breaking news of the possibility of holy matrimony in the sprinter’s near future, news also broke of his hook up with a local student in Rio after he celebrated his 30th birthday in grand style.
Jady Duarte, 20, posted WhatsApp pictures that appeared to show her kissing and cuddling Usain Bolt.
The intimate photos showed the star curled up with the student at 7am local time. Duarte spoke to local newspaper Extra and said that Bolt sent security over to get her attention.
She claims that she had not realized that she was with a famous athlete and described their night-time encounter as ‘normal’ and ‘not a big deal’.
That one bit of news has got people a bit skeptical about the talk of marriage but we will all have our ears ready to hear Usain Bolt’s wedding bells if they do sound.
