GOSSIP & RUMOURS By Game Yetu | August 22nd 2016
Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt is set to marry his longtime girlfriend Kasi Bennet after the Olympics, according to Usain Bolt's sister.
The track star confirmed earlier this year that he had a "special person" in his life and now it's been revealed the lucky woman is Jamaican fashionista Kasi Bennett.
According to the Daily Mail, Usain's sister, Christine Bolt-Hylton said: “There’s a very strong possibility they’ll get engaged when he comes home.”
The news comes days after Usain’s mum told CNN that she's ready for grandchildren: "I would hope he'll settle down, get married and start his family.
"I know he'll settle down because he has said it. He told me many times that he's going to start his family."
Speaking about his girlfriend earlier this year, Bolt admitted he tried to shield her from the spotlight.
"I'm not going to tell you who she is', he said "“I want to keep it small for now, because I know when it gets out, there’s going to be a lot of things to say, and I told her she can’t handle it”
