Usain Bolt creates storm on social media with names of new twin babies


The eight-time Olympic gold medalist track and field legend Usain Bolt announced the birth of his twin sons in an Instagram post on Father’s Day on Sunday (June 20). The post featured a family photo, with Bolt sitting next to his partner Kasi Bennett, their daughter Olympia Lightning, and the newborn twins.

Bolt also revealed the names of twins on social media with a family photo. The twins have very fitting names – just like older sister Olympia Lightning Bolt. The new twins are named Saint Leo Bolt and Thunder Bolt. Bolt added a lightning bolt emoji next to each of his children’s names in the caption, without stating when the twins were born.

Bolt and Kasi Bennett welcomed their first child Olympia Lightning together last year.

Bennett also posted a shot of the couple posing with the twins and daughter captioned: “Happy Father’s Day to my forever love! @usainbolt You are the rock of this family and the greatest daddy to our little ones. We love you world without end!”

Bolt, having retired from the sport in 2017 won’t be participating in this year’s Tokyo Olympic Games. This year’s competition will be the first Olympics since 2000 in which the sprinter won’t be seen on the track. Talking about the same he said

“I’m definitely excited to be in the stands. I’ve never got an opportunity to really watch Olympic Games, to either go (watch) swimming, the soccer or just to see all the events. So I’m excited to actually get the chance to really experience Olympics like a true fan.”
