Lightning Strikes As Usain Bolt Scores Twice During First Soccer Start
The Olympic sprint champion had two goals in his first start for Central Coast Mariners.
During Usain Bolt’s first start as a professional soccer player, lightning didn’t strike once, but twice.
The Olympic champion sprinter scored the third and fourth goals during the Australian A-League’s Central Coast Mariners’ 4-0 victory over Macarthur South West in a friendly match.
The Jamaican runner, who is with the club for an “indefinite training period,” celebrated the goals with his trademark lightning bolt pose.

“My first start and scoring two goals, it’s a good feeling,” Bolt said. “I’m happy I could come here and show the world I’m improving. I’m keen to be a Mariner, to play my best and get into the team.”
The Australian A-League season opens on October 19 and, despite the goals, it remains unclear if the Mariners will offer Bolt a contract.
