Usain Bolt is slowing down.
“(When) you’re famous, all the girls are throwing themselves at you,” the 30-year-old Jamaican runner said at a Park Ave. viewing party where he served as the “chief entertainment officer” for G.H. Mumm Champagne. “I got it out of my system already.”
Bolt says girlfriend Kasi Bennett keeps him grounded. The world-record-holding sprinter, who is frequently seen partying with sexy women, says he doesn’t even feel pressure to stray. While Bolt stated his case, supermodels Nina Agdal and Chanel Iman were roaming about the party.
“Now it’s not as stressful to go out and see girls, and think ‘Oh, my God!’ ” he claimed. “I’m much more relaxed.”
According to Bolt, Bennett, his girlfriend of nearly four years, isn’t worried about the endless reports — and photos — that frequently pop up of him dirty dancing with partygoers all around the world.
Bolt’s partying during the 2016 Olympics in Rio was outpaced only by his accomplishments on the track. He dominated the competition to preserve a 100% win record in Olympic finals dating to 2008.
“When I go out, I just have fun,” he insists. “She knows I’m responsible.”
Bolt told us that after Saturday’s party, when the celebration ended, he would hit the treadmill, then do ab work. He’s in training to compete at track’s World Championships in London this summer.
Bolt plans to pursue a professional soccer career after retiring from racing, and is set to train with Borussia Dortmund, a German club, in the fall. But after watching a lot of soccer players marry young only to find themselves engulfed in scandal, Bolt said he’s glad he waited to settle into a relationship and pursue a career in the world’s most popular sport.
Bolt recently told People magazine that fatherhood might be among his next steps.
