Eight-Time Olympic Sprint Champion ” Usian Bolt” Scores Twice On First Professional Start

Usain Bolt marked his first professional start for Central Coast Marines with a brace, as the eight-time Olympic sprint champion scored Mariners‘ third and fourth goals in a 4-0 win over Macarthur South West and celebrated with his trademark lightning bolt pose.

The Jamaican international joined Central Coast on trial in August with Borussia Dortmund prior to Central Coast Mariners, satisfied the fans in Campbelltown with his first goal for the club after 55 minutes to put Central Coast 3-0 up with a superb left-footed finish in the wake of hustling onto a Ross McCormack through-ball. He speedily created his popular lightning bolt jubilation.

Bolt was shockingly spry to cut down a free ball and afterwards fire the ball under Macarthur South West goalkeeper at his near post to net his second goal.

Scoring a goal in your first proper match, the first start and scoring two goals, it was a good feeling,” Bolt told Fox Sports. “Because this is what I’ve worked for. I’ve tried to prove myself — I’ve tried to get better. I think I’ve improved in every area.

“I think my touch is that little bit better; my vision needs to improve a little bit more. I think my running off the ball is where I’ve improved most.”

McCormack added: “The best thing about Usain Bolt is he’s so humble. He’s fitted in well with the lads. From my first day even to where he is now, the transformation is huge.”

Prior to his brace, the 32-year old wasn’t always convincing with balls, either with his strike or in holding and passing of the ball. Bolt retired from athletics after the 2017 World Championships and has been eager to forge a new career in professional football.
