Everyday Olympic big sprinter Usain Bolt and his partner Kasi Bennett have announced the birth of twin boys, who have been named Thunder Thunder and Saint Leo Bolt.
Bolt revealed the news on Instagram and Twitter with a Father’s Day family photo showing a lightning bolt emoji next to each of his children’s names in the caption, without mentioning when the twins were born.
Model Bennett also posted a photo of the couple with twins and daughter, Olympia Lightning Bolt: ‘Happy Father’’s Day to my forever love! @usainbolt You are the rock of this family and the greatest dad to our little ones. We love your world endlessly! ”
Olympia Lightning was born in May 2020, but the name was only announced two months later.
The 34-year-old Bolt, who won eight gold medals at the 2008, 2012 and 2016 Games, will not take part in the COVID-delayed Olympic Games in Tokyo next month after retiring in 2017.
The fastest man in history, Bolt holds the world records for 100 meters and 200 meters. He is the only sprinter to win the 100 and 200m doubles at three consecutive Olympic Games.
Bolt, who has won 23 major championship golds in a glittering career, tried to turn to professional football after his career ended, but he was unable to obtain a contract and retired from all sports in 2019.
“It was a good experience. “I really enjoyed just being in a team and it had to be different than track and field, and it was fun while it lasted,” he said at the time.
