Since announcing his retirement from athletics in 2017, Usain Bolt has been very clear about his goal: to become a professional footballer. The Jamaican, considered the fastest man in the world, won eleven world titles and eight Olympic titles, in addition to several world records in the 100 and 200 meters. However, at 31, he dreams of trying his luck in another sport, and his opportunity has finally come.

After trying his luck in several clubs in different parts of the planet, former sprinter Usain Bolt has found the place where he could fulfill his dream of becoming a professional footballer. A club of the first division of Australia has communicated that it will give rise to the Jamaican 'Ray' so that he tries to become soccer player. This is the Central Coast Mariners, which has issued a statement indicating that he made a contract to the eight-time Olympic champion but not as a professional player, but a link that allows him to train indefinitely to try to polish his skills and become a professional footballer.

"The Central Coast Mariners can confirm that Usain Bolt has committed to a period of indefinite training with the club, with the aim of turning the 'fastest man in the world' into a professional footballer. The agreement does not guarantee a professional player contract, but it gives the Olympic medalist the opportunity to achieve his desire to play football professionally, "said the A-League cast. After having trained in Borussia Dortmund in Germany, Mamelodi Sundowns FC in South Africa and Norway's Strømsgodset, Bolt has finally found an entity that is really interested in making progress.

"I am very excited, I would like to thank the owner and the board of directors of the Central Coast Mariners for giving me this opportunity, it has always been a dream to play football like a professional and I know it will require a lot of work and training," said the Jamaican athlete to the website of his new club. For his part, in the official announcement the CEO of the Australian club, Shaun Mielekamp, in addition to welcoming him explained the reasons for giving this opportunity to the Jamaican: "To have Usain Bolt in the club to train and, hopefully, become a Professional soccer player is perfectly aligned with this part that has the philosophy of our club." Finally Bolt reiterated his thanks and said: "Anything is possible, I do not believe in limits and I expect the challenge with the greatest of illusions".
