Usain Bolt Scores Twice On First Start For Australia’s Central Coast Mariners

Usain Bolt has scored his first goals for a professional football team, getting two on his maiden start for Central Coast Mariners in a friendly.

The Jamaican eight-time Olympic sprint champion scored the Mariners’ third and fourth goals in a 4-0 win over Macarthur South West and celebrated with his trademark lightning bolt pose.

Bolt joined the A-League club in August for an “indefinite training period”.

Afterwards Bolt, 32, said “dreams become reality through hard work”.

“My first start and scoring two goals, it’s a good feeling,” he added.

“I’m happy I could come here and show the world I’m improving. I’m keen to be a Mariner, to play my best and get into the team.”

For his opening goal Bolt ran on to a chipped ball played by Scotland striker Ross McCormack, held off the defender and finished powerfully low past the goalkeeper.

He capitalised on a defensive mix-up for his second, with a Macarthur defender and goalkeeper colliding to leave Bolt able to tap in from close range.

McCormack, on loan from Aston Villa, headed in the Mariners’ first goal in the eighth minute.

“The best thing about Usain Bolt is he’s so humble,” McCormack said.

“He’s fitted in well with the lads. From my first day even to where he is now, the transformation is huge.”

The 100m and 200m world record holder has previously trained with Borussia Dortmund, South African club Sundowns and Norway’s Stromsgodset.

He retired from athletics in 2017 and has since said it would be a “dream” to play professional football.

The Australian A-League season begins on 19 October and the Mariners are yet to confirm whether Bolt will be offered a contract.

Tech giant Huawei‘s massive new campus, which is designed to look like a group of European cities, has left people in awe.

The campus in the Chinese city of Dongguan recreates a wide swathe of Europe, from faux Italian towers to artificial lakes and classical palaces. It also has its own tram system.

The campus is split into 12 “towns,” which are areas where employees work. Each town is named after a European city. There are towns including Paris, Granada, Verona, and Bruges.

The campus is still being built. So far 8 out of the 12 towns have been completed.

The nine square kilometer facility can house up to 25,000 employees. 17,000 employees are currently located on the campus. There are over 50,000 employees at Huawei’s Shenzhen headquarters.

Huawei’s Dongguan campus is so big that a tram operates to transport employees between different towns. There’s also a bridge that connects the different parts of the campus on different sides of the lake. The bridge is a replica of the Freedom Bridge in Budapest, Hungary, CNBC reports.
