Usain Bolt dumps girlfriend to focus on Olympics

World’s fastest man, Usain Bolt has dumped his girlfriend to concentrate on winning gold at the summer Olympics.

The Jamaican sprinted split from fashion designer Lubica Slovak so that she won’t distract him in the build-up to The Games.

News of the split follows a race row in his homeland after the 25-year-old was criticised for going out with a white woman but the relationship was defended by friends close to Bolt who described the couple as being very much in love.

But it was reported in Jamaica that the relationship was over after the two had mutually decided to split.
Bolt goes into the London Games looking to defend his 100m and 200m crowns and is also hoping to beat his own world records in both races.

Lubica, 28, emigrated to Canada when she was 14 and studied fashion design in Toronto.
