Personal life: 

Usain Bolt was born on 21 August 1986 in Sherwood Content, a small rural town in Trelawny, Jamaica. He grew up with his parents, Jennifer and Wellesley Bolt, who ran the local grocery store, and his brother Sadeeki, and his sister Sherine.
His mother was gentle and forgiving, and his father was a disciplinarian who had two other children with different women.
When he was a young boy, his parents took him to the doctor because he couldn’t stay still. The doctor said that he was just hyperactive.
In his childhood Bolt suffered both scoliosis (which resulted in one leg being shorter than the other) and injury. However, he managed to cope with this.  Later Bolt stated that hard work and discipline can overcome almost anything.
As a child, he attended Waldensia Primary and All-age School, and it was here that he first began to show his sprinting potential, running in the annual national primary schools meeting for his parish.
He grew up in a poor Jamaican background, his first races were on a track that had a two-foot dip towards the finish.
Bolt spent his time playing cricket and football in the street with his brother.  “When I was young, – said Bolt, – I didn’t really think about anything other than sports”.
By the age of twelve, Bolt had become the school’s fastest runner over the 100 metres distance. The first sport to interest him was cricket.
As a child, he was a fan of Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar, West Indian opener Chris Gayle and Australian opener Matthew Hayden and admired the bowling of Waqar Younis.
Upon his entry to William Knibb Memorial High School, Bolt continued to focus on other sports, but his cricket coach noticed Bolt’s speed on the pitch and urged him to try track and field events.
Later Pablo McNeil and Dwayne Barrett coached Bolt, encouraging him to focus his energy on improving his unique athletic abilities.
Bolt has also expressed his love for football and is a fan of Manchester United. Following a race in Manchester, he met the team at their training ground and offered Cristiano Ronaldo some sprinting advice.
Usain was coached by Glenn Mills. Bolt graduated from the University of Technology Jamaica.
His girlfriend is Mizicann Evans, who completed GCE ‘A-Levels in Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics at Quality Academics and University College of the Caribbean. The pair met as teenagers over 13 years ago when Mizicann was 14 and Usain was a 17-year-old. After bonding as friends, they became a couple in 2004.
From 2011 -2012 years he had a romantic relationship with a fashion designer from Slovakia Lubica Kucerova and then with the British sprinter Megan Edwards. Later he was dating former Miss Jamaica April Jackson, model Nailah Dillard and Bolt’s longtime girlfriend carnival queen Kasi Bennett.
On 17 May 2020,  Kasi Bennett gave birth to their first child, a daughter named Olympia Lightning Bolt and in June 2021 she gave birth to twin boys named Saint Leo and Thunder.
Zest: His achievements in sprinting have earned him the nickname “‘Lightning Bolt”. After his world record-breaking run in New York City, which was preceded by a lightning storm, the press frequently made puns on the Jamaican’s name, nicknaming him “Lightning Bolt” and the “Bolt from the blue”.
Bolt is Catholic and his middle name is St. Leo. Trelawny Parish had a history of athletic success with past inhabitants, including Michael Green, Veronica Campbell-Brown, Sanya Richards and Ben Johnson.
In the Olympic 100 m final, Bolt broke new ground, winning in 9.683 s. He started beating his chest in celebration 15m before the finish.  There Bolt first demonstrated his new signature pose (based on a Jamaican dance ) and, after that, set a new world record of 19.30 seconds (200m).
