Bolt Talks of Switch From Track to Soccer

The Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt said that he would attempt to play professional soccer once he retires from track and field.


I’m not sure how good he is but he’d struggle. Football and track are totally different worlds. Especially with the game now. I know talented kids who play in reserve teams in the Premiership and they cant get a sniff at the first team. I hope he doesnt think his pace is an automatic ‘bye’ into professional football…it goes way beyond that in the modern game…trust me…i know!

Publicity stunt to broaden crossover appeal and create interest in people not usually interested in athletics.

It’ll never happen.


Just like Carl Lewis and his acting/singing career…

The Carl Lewis anthem clip is the funniest thing I’ve ever heard!

Not as funny as his music video…funny and traumatic at the same time.

enjoy :smiley:

…after he tries out soccer he could give it a shot at NASA too…
