Bolt gets semi af­ter night with Swedish girls

ATH­LET­ICS

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY AUG 9 -

USAIN BOLT warmed up for his triple gold tilt – by lin­ing up a hat-trick of stun­ning Swedes.

The world’s fastest man showed he’s a swift mover off the track as well as on it by liv­ing most blokes’ se­cret fan­tasy – hav­ing half the Swedish hand­ball team back to his room.

Bolt strolled into the 200m semi-fi­nals yes­ter­day in his bid to make it three Olympic sprint golds.

And, af­ter say­ing he can be the first man to dip be­low 19 sec­onds in Thurs­day’s fi­nal, the Ja­maican me­gas­tar was straight out of the blocks away from the Olympic Sta­dium as he was paid a visit by his three hot Scan­di­na­vian fans – who were no doubt im­pressed by his big, shiny gong.

The sprint leg­end tweeted a pic­ture of him­self and the tasty trio – Abriella Kain, Is­abelle Gullden and Jam­ina Roberts – say­ing: “In Kingston, we say hmmm mmm.”

De­spite los­ing all five matches and fin­ish­ing bot­tom of their group, the Swedish lovelies were given “spe­cial ac­cred­i­ta­tion” to join Bolt’s party af­ter he eas­ily re­tained his Olympic 100m crown on Sun­day.

Jam­ina in­sisted the four­some got up to noth­ing naughty, re­veal­ing the group passed the time talk­ing, pos­ing for pho­tos and look­ing at Face­book.

She said: “We met his coach and asked if we could fol­low on and meet Bolt. It was awe­some, he wasn’t cocky. He wasn’t drunk ei­ther – he’d just got back from the race.”

Bolt hopes to add the 200m to his 100m crown and, with Ja­maica red-hot favourites in the 4x100m, his huge medal haul is set to grow. He added: “I’m not go­ing to say I’ll beat 19 sec­onds in the 200 be­cause peo­ple will keep me to that, but it’s on my mind. “This first gold means I’m one step closer to be­ing a

leg­end.”
