Usain Bolt’s guide to his new home Down Under
SO Gosford is hosting the world's fastest man for the next few weeks while he trials for the Central Coast Mariners.
Let's face it, we're going to love having Usain Bolt on the coast whether he ends up running on for the Mariners or sitting on the bench.
And we want him to love being here, too. He might be fast but we don't want him to rush off.
While the glamour of Sydney seems to be very close, we'd like to see him tempted to stay and play on the coast.
Lucky for us (in this case) the train service is terrible and the M1 is a carpark most of the time so, unless he charters a helicopter, he's going to have to entertain himself there.
Yes, the coast has been accused at times of being "Mount Druitt by the sea". It's a toss-up whether Mt Druitt or the coast is more insulted by that.
And yes, some of the nocturnal locals can be a bit rowdy - and we're not talking about the possums.
But it's much more than just a commuter belt for Sydney.
So here's a bit of an insider's guide to what he could get up to in between training sessions.
