Still the fastest man in the world, Jamaican sprint ace, Usain Bolt turns 32 on Tuesday.
He celebrated his birthday with yet another trial with a soccer club, this time with the Central Coast Mariners in Australia.
Bolt has had training stints at various clubs around the world, including with Mamelodi Sundowns in Pretoria.
He is still determined to get a professional contract. To that end he has been given an open-ended trial with the Mariners, who finished bottom of the 10-team Australian A-League last season.
“I’m just going to put in the work, you know what I mean. This is my first chance playing, getting a chance to train and to get to a level to play as a professional footballer. So, I don’t know what to expect. So, I’m just here to push myself, learn as much as possible. I told the coach from the start, ‘listen, I’m here with a blank slate, no matter what I have learned, no matter what I’ve seen on TV’. For me it’s a blank slate, I’m here to learn and to get better.”
