Usain Bolt has given his daughter a name synonymous with his legacy as a world champion and one of the greatest sprinters of all time.

On Tuesday, the Jamaican world record holder shared exclusive photos of his adorable bundle of joy and gloriously revealed her name, Olympia Lightning Bolt. Befitting, isn’t it? The first photo, captioned with the baby’s name, was shared on Twitter.

Bolt also used Tuesday’s reveal to pay an adorable tribute to his longtime girlfriend, Kasi Bennett, on both Twitter and Instagram as she celebrated her birthday, sharing photos of her cozying up with baby Olympia.

“I want to wish my gf @kasi__b a happy birthday. I get to spend ur special day with u. I want nothing but happiness for u & will continue to doing my best keeping a smile on ur face. We have started a new chapter together with our daughter Olympia Lightning Bolt,” he captioned on Twitter.

“Now we have started a new chapter together with our daughter Olympia Lightning Bolt I look forward to what the future will bring for us but be reassured that I will be the ROCK for this family. I Love you and happy 21th birthday,” he added on Instagram with laughing emojis.

The proud dad also shared two more photos of his beautiful daughter on Twitter with the caption: “Girl Dad #OlympiaLightningBolt.”

Bolt, 33, and Kasi, announced they were expecting Olympia in January. They welcomed her on May 17.

Currently on retirement, Bolt holds the records for the fastest 100m and 200m races, a feat he achieved at the 2009 Berlin World Athletics Championships. With 23 gold medals to his name, the 11-time world champion is also the only male athlete to win three 100m Olympic gold medals, CNN reports.
