Usain Bolt’s Girlfriend Is Beyond Gorgeous. So It’s No Wonder His Mom Has Dropped Some Hints

Usain Bolt is perhaps the most dedicated sprinter on the planet, but there’s a love in his life who seems to be taking over from the running. His gorgeous lady love is beyond impeccable, and – from what Bolt’s mother has been saying – she could be more than just his girlfriend.

Obviously, Usain Bolt needs no introduction. Sprinter; Olympian; national hero – he holds the world records in both the 100m and 200m sprints. And recently, of course, he became the first athlete to win all three sprinting events in three Olympic games.

At the Rio Olympics the sprinter took home three more gold medals while representing his native Jamaica. Through all his victories, however, all anyone could talk about was a woman named Kasi waiting for him at home.

Meet Kasi Bennett, a 26-year-old lawyer from Old Harbour, Jamaica, who just so happens to be Bolt’s latest girlfriend. And judging by her immense beauty, we can see why she’s been stealing headlines away from her other half.

Though the couple have been steady for almost three years now, Bolt and Bennett have kept their relationship pretty much on the down-low. Indeed, news of their union only came out when Bolt’s rep confirmed that they were an item.

Despite keeping their love a secret, though, Bolt dropped hints about his relationship status throughout 2016. In January he revealed that he was going serious with someone. Then, four months later, he shared a photo of the two, titled “President and First Lady,” together at Jamaica’s Bacchanal carnival.

It all begs the question as to why the pair felt the need to keep their relationship a secret for so long. Well, according to Bolt, the answer has less to do with privacy than protecting Bennett from the pitfalls of fame.

“I have explained to her that when it comes out, it’s not going to be as she thinks it’s going to be,” he told journalist Ian Boyne on Profile. “A lot of people will try to attack her, so I tell her to just take it easy and let’s make sure that you’re ready for this.”

So who is this mysterious woman who has taken Bolt’s heart? Details about Bennett’s life are fairly scarce, but she’s something of a fashionista, with her Instagram profile devoted to photos of her showing off some particularly chic items of clothing.

She’s also a brainy beauty who has earned a Bachelor of Laws and a Masters in Business Management. Of course, her looks and figure are phenomenal as well, and we have no doubt that Bolt was smitten at first sight.

What’s more, while she may have been absent from this year’s games, Bennett was busy cheering her man on via social media. For example, after his third gold medal she tweeted, “You know I’m never nervous. He always got it. All the work and talent; all him.”

Still, Bolt isn’t the only one celebrating his relationship; by all accounts, his mother Jennifer is ecstatic as well. And – now that the sprinter has announced plans to retire next year – it seems that his doting mom already has wedding bells ringing in her ears.

Speaking to CNN, Jennifer relayed her plans for her son’s future. “I would hope he’ll settle down, get married and start his family,” she said. “I know he’ll settle down because he has said it. He told me many times that he’s going to start his family.”

Indeed, Bolt himself has not been coy about his thoughts on matrimony and has stated that married life is something that, as he put it, “I want for myself.” He clarified, “I can’t put a time-frame on it – when I find the right girl, I would definitely get married.”

However, Bolt’s marriage plans may have to wait. It seems that Bolt has been up to no good during his stay in Rio, and his relationship with Bennett may have hit some rough waters as a result.

While out celebrating his 30th birthday in a Rio nightclub, Bolt was seen kissing and dancing with not one but two women. The next day, moreover, a 20-year-old student released photos of her and Bolt in bed, reportedly after them having spent the night together.

And while Bennett hasn’t responded directly to these indiscretions, her recent social media activity shows that she isn’t taking Bolt’s actions lying down. For instance, she has liked several of her Instagram and Twitter followers’ posts which chastised Bolt for his behavior.

That said, regardless of the trouble the relationship seems to be steering towards, Bolt’s sister Christine doesn’t think Bennett will stay mad at him for long. “I know she will be upset,” she explained to the Daily Mail. “But she will talk to him and I know they can work their difficulties out.”

Furthermore, Christine doesn’t think that philandering is in her brother’s nature. “Usain doesn’t believe in cheating,” she added. “Normally when we speak he [says] he is against stuff like that. He has never done this before as far as I know.”

With any luck, then, Bolt and Bennett will be able to patch up their difficulties in no time. Hopefully, this couple’s love hasn’t reached the finish line yet and we’ll be seeing more of this duo together in the months to come.
