Usain Bolt and girlfriend Kasi Bennett welcome twins St Leo and Thunder Bolt

By June 20, 2021

The undisputed king of the track Usain Bolt and his queen Kasi Bennett have welcomed two new additions to the family.

On Father’s Day, barely a year after the birth of their daughter Olympia Lightning Bolt, the pair have released the first images of their newborn twins Saint Leo Bolt and Thunder Bolt.

Bolt posted the family portrait with his two newly minted offspring for his 10 million followers on Instagram while Bennett showed off her offspring to her more than 380,000 followers. Under the images, she posted “Happy Father’s Day to my forever love! @usainbolt. You are the rock of this family and the greatest daddy to our little ones. We love you world without end.”

Meanwhile, Bolt received thousands of congratulatory messages from thousands of fans including Jamaica Member of Parliament and former Miss World, Lisa Hanna, two-time Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser Pryce, 200m World Champion Dina Asher-Smith and Digicel, for whom the world-record holder is an ambassador.

Bolt’s daughter Olympia was born in May 2020.

    Veteran Manning Cup coach Jerome Waite is confident of turning the St Jago schoolboy football program around in short order, having recently taken the reigns, after parting ways with Charlie Smith a team that he has been associated with for several years.

    Waite who has been associated with the school’s football program in some capacity since 1987 has been an unfamiliar sight on the bench of the Monk Street-based team this season.  After over 30-years at the Charlie Smith, however, he looks forward to a new challenge.  

    “After changing so many lives you just have to know that it’s time to move on to another region and see how many lives you can change there,” Waite said of the move, which occurred two seasons ago.

    During his time as part of the Charlie Smith coaching unit, Waite has managed to claim three Manning Cup titles and believes that some level of success could soon be replicated at St Jago.

    “It can happen in three years (competitive team) once we spend a lot of time to get them it will happen.  You would classify this as a crash program because Covid messed up the whole season, but you have to give ISSA some credit.”

    St Jago has never won the title but went to the final in 2003.
