He may be the fastest man alive, but it appears one special lady has won the race to Usain Bolt’s heart. Meet Kasi Bennett, a brunette bombshell, who if you’ve been paying close attention to Bolt’s Twitter feed, has been cheering on her “boss” in a series of supportive messages, during his run in the 2016 Summer Olympics. “You know I’m never nervous,” she tweeted during the Games. “He always got it. All the work and talent — all him.”
“The level of pride is unfathomable,” she tweeted after he secured another gold.
While we haven’t spotted Bennett at the games, according to Bolt, the pair have reportedly been hot and heavy for nearly three years. “I have explained to her that when it comes out, it’s not going to be as she thinks it’s going to be,” he explained. “A lot of people will try to attack her, so I tell her to just take it easy and let’s make sure that you’re ready for this.”
“I don’t definitely hide, but we don’t try to put it out in the media like ‘Here she is,’ because I personally know what’s going to happen,” he continued, stressing his desire to shield his girlfriend from any unwarranted attacks.
As for what attracted Bolt to Bennett to begin with, the nine-time Olympic gold medalist revealed she’s got one mesmerizing backside. “One of the things that stands out is the buttocks area,” he told Profile‘s Ian Boyne. “That’s what really attracts me. I date mostly curvaceous woman.”
