Usain Bolt shares first photos of his daughter and reveals her absolutely incredible name

By Zach Harper

Usain Bolt is the greatest sprinter of all time, having won eight Olympic gold medals. He also holds world records in the 100-metre dash, 200-metre dash and 4x100-metre relay. He's nothing short of a legend, so it makes complete sense that he'd choose an incredible name for his daughter.

To celebrate girlfriend Kasi Bennett's birthday, Usain took to Instagram and Twitter to share a photoshoot of her holding their nearly two-month-old daughter, who they've named... drum roll, please... Olympia Lightning Bolt. How amazing is that?!

"I want to wish my gf @kasi.b a happy birthday and to let u know I am happy to spend ur special day with u," he wrote in the caption. "I want nothing but happiness for u and will continue doing the best keeping a smile on ur face."

The photos shows Kasi holding Olympia in her arms and also posing alone. In two pictures, the adorable little girl can be seen gazing up at the camera in a pink dress and headband.

Olympia is a popular name choice for former Olympians. You'll recall it's the middle name of Serena Williams's daughter, Alexis, whom she shares with husband Alexis Ohanian. The two call her Olympia. So, little Olympia Lightning Bolt is in good company!

During his incredible sprinting career, Usain became known for his popular "Lightning Bolt" pose, in which he raises his left arm to the side and folds his right arm to his chest. We bet Olympia will be learning how to do her dad's signature move very soon!

After Kasi and Usain welcomed Olympia in May, he tweeted that he was thrilled he had become "a girl dad."

"I look forward to what the future will bring for us but be reassured that I will be the ROCK for this family," Usain wrote on July 8.
