    The world has been reacting with a mixture of celebration and admiration following the official introduction of Usain Bolt’s daughter to the world on Tuesday.

    Olympia Lightning Bolt was born on May 17, 2020. Just over two months later, her mother Kasi Bennett celebrated her birthday and her world-famous boyfriend posted in celebration a photo of their beautiful daughter on his Twitter and Instagram accounts.

    Among the hundreds of reactions were Miss Universe runner-up Yendi Phillips, Miss World 1993 Lisa Hannah, four-time World 100m champion Shelly-Ann Fraser Pryce, 400m world-record holder and Olympic champion Wayde van Niekerk, and Olympic silver medallist Juliet Cuthbert-Flynn.

    “Absolutely lovely. What a blessing,” Phillips commented.

    “Blessings,” was how Hannah, now a Jamaican Member of Parliament reacted.

    “Beautiful big bro,” said van Nierkerk.

    British 100m champion Dina Asher-Smith was smitten by the two-month-old Olympia. “So adorable,” she wrote.

    Twenty-three-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams, whose daughter is also named Olympia, sent heart emojis to the 11-time world champion.

    On Twitter, Bolt-sponsor Digicel posted: “Congrats again to @usainbolt and @kasi.b on their baby girl. Also sending Birthday Blessings to Kasi on her special day.”

    There were also reactions from Bolt's close fried Jamaican entertainer Chris Martin and former Barcelona player and coach Patrick Kluivert.

    The eight-time Olympic medalist and double world record holder Bolt also posted a special tribute to his lady love on Instagram that read in part:

    “I want to wish my gf @kasi.b a happy birthday and to let you know I am happy to spend your special day with you. Now we have started a new chapter together with our daughter Olympia Lightning Bolt.”

     

     

  • PUMA adds Omar McLeod to #Foreverfaster roster PUMA adds Omar McLeod to #Foreverfaster roster

    Olympic 110-metre hurdles champion, Omar McLeod, is now a PUMA athlete, making the move from Nike, with whom he had been contracted since 2015.

    McLeod made the announcement himself on Instagram on Friday, saying: “happy to be part of the #foreverfaster family.”

    McLeod burst onto the scene in 2015, lowering his personal best of 13.44 to 12.97, setting the national record for the first time and becoming the national champion.

    A year later, McLeod was winning the World Indoor title, running the 60-metre hurdles in 7.41 seconds.

    He would finish sixth at the World Championships. In another year, McLeod would make history for Jamaica, running 13.05 seconds to claim Olympic gold. He would add a World Championship gold to his Olympic title the following year, but was unable to defend that title in 2019 after clipping a hurdle.
