This is the dilemma of Olympic athletes who retire from competition in their 20s and then realize: Man, I’m bored.
Michael Phelps will likely just eat more Subway with moms, but Usain Bolt is looking to do something more constructive with his time.
It’s no secret that Bolt has a passion for soccer, and the fastest-man-ever-created-by-human-beings-on-planet-Earth is now lobbying to get a trial with Man United.
He told The Sun:
“People think I am joking, but if Alex Ferguson called me up and said, ‘OK let’s do this, come and have a trial’, it would be impossible for me to say no. I would not take up the challenge if I didn’t think I was good enough. I would be the fastest player on the team – but I can play as well.”
Personally, I think Bolt is worth a look. Could he stay onside? Not even if he was crawling. But if nothing else, it’d be fun to watch a soccer player break the sound barrier.
