Usain Bolt's First Touch On His Debut Was A Complete Fluke

Usain Bolt poised to make professional football debut

An eight-time Olympic gold medalist and 11-time World Championships gold medalist, Bolt wasn't quite ready to compared his Mariners experience to, say, his incredible performance at the 2008 Summer Games.

Starting on the left wing, he fluffed his first touch, making a run on the inside only for the through ball to hit him on the heel.

The 32-year-old managed the following stats, picking up a total of nine touches as well as failing to record a single shot on target.

Met Éireann, Ireland's national forecaster, do not issue long-range forecasts and therefore can not confirm the possible storm. The National Hurricane Center has also confirmed that this feature has developed into a potential tropical cyclone.


Bolt, 31, who holds the world records for the 100m and 200m, had already announced last January that he would be training with Dortmund during the current global break.

"It's a wonderful moment to play at a high level, in professional football", Bolt said after the Mariners beat an amateur side 6-1.

"It was good; it was what I expected". The world record-holding Jamaican has said in the past he'd like to take a crack at Premier League and play with Manchester United, and he even trained with Bundesliga's Borussia Dortmund earlier in the year.

"I won't judge him on whether he can zip past somebody or get on the end of a header, we need to get him fit and give him time. I've just got to put in the work and get up to speed".

Bolt had admitted before the game he was not match fit and, pouring with sweat, he exhausted quickly before a late flurry, narrowly failing to get on the end of a low cross after a sprint into the box, before seeing a shot blocked.

The Jamaican sprint king. who has been given a chance to train with the Australian side in a bid to win a contract, finally came on in the 71st minute of a pre-season friendly against Central Coast Football, to huge cheers from the crowd and fireworks.

USA hopes were buoyed by wins for 11th seed John Isner and 18th-ranked Jack Sock who won his first singles match since May. Surprise finalist Kevin Anderson had to fight hard to turn away Ryan Harrison in a 5-setter 7-6 (4), 5-7, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.


"The fitness guys have told me he's got a good 20 minutes in him", Mulvey said. I'll be getting a lot more time on the ball, I personally feel I will get a contract by then.
