Instead of coming to train with Austin BOLD FC, Austin's USL soccer team, Jamaican Olympian Usain Bolt is taking his talents down under to the Central Coast Mariners, according to a tweet from the Australian soccer team. "I haven't had time to go and watch (video of) every player that's come in for training", he said. "Remember I don't think limits".

Beginning with the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Bolt won the 100 and 200 meters at three consecutive Summer Games.

The eight-time Olympic gold medalists announced he would be heading to Gosford, north of Sydney, on August 18, for an "indefinite" training period. His 2009 world record runs in each event are still intact.

Bull said Lyle's death would be felt across the globe - a testament to the impact the boy from Shepparton had wherever he went. He thanked his many "friends around the world, whether they're spectators, whether they're golfers, whether they're marshals".

He spent spent a well-documented period training with German Bundesliga team Borussia Dortmund, as well as the Mamelodi Sundowns in South Africa and Strømsgodset in Norway.

If his speed is a given, at 6-foot 5-inches - the same height as LA Galaxy marksman Zlatan Ibrahimovic - Bolt represents a combination of size and strength rarely seen in world football.

Shaun Mielekamp, chief executive at the Central Coast Mariners, said Bolt would be welcomed "with open arms", but that the club remains "grounded and focused on the job in hand".

National Football League preseason Week 1: Expectations for Baker Mayfield, Saquon Barkley, Andrew Luck
It's only the first preseason game, but the Baker Mayfield hype train is running like a well-oiled machine. The Browns starting QB Tyrod Taylor completed all of his five passes for 99 yards and a touchdown.

The Mariners released a statement on Tuesday saying the agreement does not guarantee Bolt a professional contract but does give him the opportunity.

"If the trial goes ahead and Central Coast Mariners decided it stacks up and they want to offer him a contract, then we will have a discussion with them around that and what might be possible".

"It is important that we don't get too caught up in the hype of possibilities, but. we are committed to building a team that will win matches and instil belief, hopefully Usain can help us on this mission", he said. The 32-year-old Honda played 98 times for Japan before announcing his retirement after the World Cup in Russian Federation.
