Who knew Usain Bolt was such a Rocky fan?
According to a report coming out of Kingston, Jamaica, the world’s fastest human has bolted (get it?) from his fashion designer girlfriend, Lubica Slovak, citing not irreconcilable differences, rather the desire to focus on dominating the upcoming summer games in London.
A source close to Bolt said, "He will have plenty of time for relationships. At the moment, he's concentrating on his running career and doesn't want anything to distract from that.”
First of all, based on the races I have watched, dude can afford a distraction or two and still take the field comfortably. And seriously now, let’s call this like it is – no matter what the year, no matter the host country, no matter winter or summer, for just over two weeks, the chosen epicenter of Olympic competition becomes a true exercise in international relations. It's no secret. Bolt can hide behind the veil of focus, but this is a clear case of the Ross Geller “we were on a break” defense strategy.
How much you wanna bet Bolt and the Slovakian Slovak (that’s not a joke…she’s from Slovakia) will be right back to holdin’ hands come September? Of course, it’s a risky strategy, for if Bolt says “adios” and fails to win gold…then comes crawling back to his lady…that’s one titanic trump card for Slovak.
Good luck with that, my friend.
