After a few spells around at a number of clubs in Europe, no one really taking Usain Bolt seriously in his attempt to gain a professional contract, he is now experiencing exciting times in Australia.
Yesterday he scored his first two goals for his club Central Coast Mariners, in a friendly against an amateur XI, named McArthur South West United. Despite amateur opponents Bolt showed improved skills on the ball and his scoring and movement is impressive.
At the age of 32, and being a retired athlete, he shows that he is talking business and hopefully he will be able to play at the highest level in Australia and just take step by step in becoming a forward to count.
He will be a handfull for most defenders with his explosive ability and fast moves, his physical presence is of a kind that might be difficult for other footballers to match. It will be interesting to follow his new career and we certainly hope he will push for a place in the Jamaica national soccer team.
Bolt has earlier said his dream is to play for Manchester United and described it as epic if that would happen, to see him and his early progression is showing that if you have dreams you can moved mountains.
Bolt is a determined fella knowing how to get his performances gradually better with the right type of approach and training, learning his trade and being devoted and serious about his goal and vision.
Watch his goals and take notice of his way of handling a defender, that shows how this man can go on and really be a good player for his new team in Australia.
