Usain Bolt says, ‘fatherhood harder than breaking a world record’

Jamaican sprint king Usain Bolt who has recently welcomed a baby girl in his family is finding fatherhood ‘harder than breaking a world record’. 
Bolt said fatherhood was “harder than breaking a world record.
Bolt meanwhile said he is adjusting to life as a father after he and partner Kasi Bennett welcomed a baby girl recently.

“I got sick that first week as I was scared to fall asleep so I stayed up at nights just watching her,” he said.

“I am a heavy sleeper but I have learned that I am going to wake up, I am going to get up no matter what, I am getting better and I am learning.” 

Bolt recently posted pictures of his baby daughter for the first time after revealing her name is Olympia Lightning. The Olympic gold medallist, 33, and his partner Kasi Bennett, now 31, welcomed their first child on June 14. Bolt is an 11-time world champion and is also the only athlete to win gold medals in successive three Olympics in 2008, 2012, and 2016

Speed King Usain Bolt can make a comeback ?

The world 100m and 200m record holder and eight-time Olympic champion told Variety magazine he had no plans to resurrect his sprinting career. But the 33-year-old told Variety magazine in a video interview, he would at least consider a comeback if veteran coach Glen Mills asked him.

“If my coach came back and told me, let’s do this, I will, because I believe so much in my coach,” Bolt said.

“So I know if he says we’re going to do this, I know it’s possible. Give Glen Mills a call, and I’ll be back.”

Bolt, who last competed internationally at the World Championships in London in 2017 where he won bronze in the 100m, said he does not visit the track any more.

“My coach gets too excited when I come to the track, so I stay away,” he said.
