London, Jan 6: Usain Bolt was spurred on to the finish line to win the Olympic gold by an image of his then girlfriend, sexy Megan Edwards’ perfectly-formed bottom, it has been revealed.
Junior athlete Edwards had sent Bolt a photo of her cute rear before the race, along with the message: “Think of my bum at the finish line lol,” the Sun reported.
Jamaican superstar Bolt, 26, replied saying he’ll do that before the August 5 event at London’s Olympic Stadium.
After 80,000 spectators and millions watching on TV saw him run a blistering 9.63 seconds to claim his first gold medal of the Games, Edwards texted to congratulate him.
To which he wrote back: “I was thinking of ur ass.”
As he prepared for the 200m final four days later, he asked for another snap of her bottom saying: “Need a pic for the 200m more motivation to go fast.”
Edwards, 22, forgot to send him one but Bolt still went on to clinch his second gold medal.
And before the 4x100m relay final on August 11, Bolt sent her a message begging again, this time saying: “Need another pic that will win me a world record.”
Edwards obliged with a new picture and Bolt went on to win his third gold of the Games with his Jamaica team-mates and set a new fastest time.
A close friend of Edwards’ said that she was thrilled to know she had helped the sprinter get in the right frame of mind to win three golds. (ANI)
