Nuts and Bolt! Sprint legend grabs double after painful kick

  • SYDNEY AUSTRALIA- OCTOBER 12 Usain Bolt of the Mariners celebrates scoring a goal during the pre-season friendly match between the Central Coast Mariners and Macarthur South West United at Campbelltown Sports Stadium

"I'm here to prove to the world, as I said, that I can be a footballer", Bolt said during a press conference on Friday, according to an ESPN video.

Check out highlights of his two goals in the posts embedded below.

Bolt said he definitely felt ready to play in the A-League if required, but Mulvey reiterated it could still be a while before a decision is made on whether the Jamaican gets a contract.

But with a heavy knock in the early goings and few near misses, it took the 32-year-old some time to find his feet in the match.

In the 55th minute, Bolt received a ball close to the six-yard box but despite pressure from the defender, he held his ground and netted in a low strike to score his debut goal.

"I think I've improved in every area".

Ross McCormack set up the Olympic champion as he notched his first ever goal for Australian side Central Coast Mariners in his very first game for the club.

"They've seen me training, they've seen what I'm capable of and now they need to analyse", he said Friday after the game, per The Sydney Morning Herald's Matt Bungard.

Hurricane Michael Has Arrived
He says the number of rescues remains fluid and there were no reports of deaths so far from the Coast Guard's missions. Panama City was also ravaged by the hurricane, with drone footage showing homes and schools completely torn apart.

"You've got to be so happy for the guy, haven't you?"

Usain Bolt of the Mariners, once an Olympic speedster.

"I think my touch is that little bit better".

"I'm just pushing myself and have put in the work so now I have to go out there and execute".

"My positioning is much better, I think I'm doing much more in space, I'm running in space much better".

While Mielekamp stressed that the primary focus was getting the main team to Brisbane for the opening match of the season next weekend, he said he was taking time to enjoy the attention Bolt has focused on his club.

Playing the sport had been a lifelong dream for the Jamaican athlete and he was given a shot at the same by Australian side, Central Coast Mariners.

Manchester United supporter Usain Bolt is best known for being the fastest human to ever walk the earth but his real passion is football. I've learned a lot.
