Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt has been dominating the track field during the 2016 Rio Olympics, but behind the scenes his girlfriend Kasi Bennett has been the one captivating everyone’s attention. Bolt rarely talks about his personal life but a rep for the athlete recently confirmed that he is in a relationship with Bennett.
Of course, fans are eager to know a little more about the special lady who has Bolt’s heart, so here are a few facts about Bennett:
They’ve Been Dating For At Least Two Years
It’s only been in recent months that Bolt and Bennett started sharing photos of each other on their social media accounts, but the couple has been together for a few years now. During an interview with the Telegraph in July, Bolt explained that he wasn’t ready to publicly reveal who his girlfriend was because of the media scrutiny. “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 because I’ve been through the media,” he said. “I understand how you guys are — especially British media.”
She Doesn’t Post On Instagram That Much
Bennett’s Instagram account only has 60 posts, but she already has over 30,000 followers. A few of her posts are pictures of her boyfriend, but a majority of them are her showing off the outfit she wore that day and selfies.
She Loves Flaunting Her Curves
Bennett isn’t afraid to flaunt her curves for the camera and sometimes shares risqué photos of her posing in barely-there outfits, like the one she wore to Carnival, a Brazilian festival. Apparently, Bolt is also a huge fan of Bennett’s curves. Speaking to journalist Ian Boyne in January, he said one of the first things he’s attracted to is a woman’s backside. “One of the things that stands out is the buttocks area,” said. ”That’s what really attracts me. I date mostly curvaceous women.”
She’s On Snapchat, Periscope And Twitter
Even though Bennett doesn’t post to Instagram all that much, she is very active on social media. The Jamaican beauty seems to use her Twitter a lot, and lately has been sharing supportive messages about Bolt as he competes in the Olympics. According to her Twitter page, she’s also on Snapchat under the username kasi.b and Periscope as kasi_b.
She’s A Pokémon Go Fan
Just like millions of other people, Bennett loves playing Pokémon Go. The fashionista recently posted a screenshot of the mobile game thanking a friend for helping her out.
She’s An Excellent Gift-Giver
According to Bennett, she’s pretty good at giving out gifts. She tweeted that she plans a gifts “a year and a half in advance” because she wants to make sure “it’s right.” Apparently, Bolt is also good at giving gifts as well.
