Usain Bolt’s Mum: Now Get Married Son!

If the world’s fastest man is focused on coming away from the Olympic Games with an unprecedented “Triple-Triple” of gold medals, Usain Bolt’s mother also has an eye on the future.

Bolt carved yet another notch in history when he became the first man in history to land three successive Olympic 100m titles.

The Jamaican global icon recovered from a sluggish start to run down his US rival Justin Gatlin in the final 30 metres to stop the clock in 9.81 and clinch gold by a clear margin of 0.08.

It was the slowest time of his three Olympic successes but nobody in near-capacity Olympic stadium seemed to care, the chants of ‘Bolt, Bolt, Bolt’ echoing around before and after the race.

History had been written once again and the ‘triple triple’ is well and truly on as he chases a record-equalling nine Olympic athletics medals to match the achievements of Finnish distance legend Paavo Nurmi and American sprinter/jumper Carl Lewis.

Old enough

Bolt, who turns 30 on the final day of competition at the Games, bids to win the 100m, 200m and the 4x100m relay title at three consecutive Olympics, there’s another thing on the sprinter’s mind, according to his 54-year-old mom Jennifer Bolt .
 
“He’s trying to get everyone to love because he has grown close to us and yet he has gotten a lot of love. So he’s like to share some of that joy with others.”
 

“I would hope he’ll settle down, get married and start his family,” Jennifer Bolt told CNN’s Don Riddell as she talked about the hopes she has for her son once he stops competing.
 
“I know he’ll settle down because he has said it,” she added ahead of Bolt running in the 100 meters over the weekend at Rio’s Olympic Stadium.
 
“He told me many times that he’s going to start his family.”
