Usain Bolt Set To Train With Borussia Dortmund

Already famed for their lightning-quick attacking style, Borussia Dortmund may be set for a lesson in how to hit the turbo boost with sprinter Usain Bolt set for a stint training with Die Schwarz-Gelben.


In an interview with English daily The Guardian over the weekend, it was suggested that the reigning World and Olympic 100m and 200m champion had been in contact with Dortmund about the possibility of training with the North Rhine-Westphalia club.

“It’s neither a joke nor a marketing measure, it’s something that has been decided on for quite a while,”

Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke told German sports magazine Kicker when asked about Bolt’s intentions.

Watzke added that he learned,

“…a few weeks ago that Usain had asked if he could train with us; I said absolutely, no problem at all. Our coach (Thomas Tuchel) is also good with it.”

It is well-known that the Jamaican sprinter is a passionate football fan and, despite now being 30, still harbours serious ambitions of playing professionally. Although he would not be drawn on Bolt’s desires to sign for a top club, Watzke said that BVB would be delighted to entertain the Kingston-native at their Dortmund-Brackel training base.

“We wouldn’t organise it during a period where we have a midweek game, of course, but perhaps during a preparatory phase or something like that,” the CEO explained.

“The team would no doubt think it a great idea too. We’re looking forward to it, and it’s an honour for us.”

A one-on-one sprint against Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would be an intriguing prospect…
