Update: 5/11/12

Was it mounting pressure that caused the world fastest man to dump his girlfriend?

Only Usain Bolt knows the real reason why he ended his relationship with Canadian designer Lubica Slovak, but days after Jamaicans voiced their disapproval of one of their own dating a white foreigner, Usain ended his relationship with Lubica.

Usain told friends he ended the relationship in order to focus on his career, but is this really the reason?

Original story

Race matters……in Jamaica!

Jamaican’s, mostly the women, are outraged that the world’ fastest man Usain Bolt is dating a white Canadian.

The 25-year-old sprinter is said to be in a “serious” relationship with 28-year-old Slovakian-born fashion designer Lubica Slovak, who moved to Canada at the age of 14 with her family.

Slovak, who moved to Jamaica shortly after going to the Caribbean island on vacation in 2000, met the reigning Olympic champion and world record holder over the 100 and 200 meters, last year through mutual friend, reggae singer Tami Chynn.

Shortly after their meeting, Slovak, who owns a clothing company in Jamaica with Chynn called Anuna, interviewed Bolt for a Slovakian newspaper and the couple began dating in November.

The couple kept the relationship on the down-low until last month when they were seen kissing in public.

The Jamaican Observer recently wrote an article about their relationship and included a cartoon of a black woman with “local” written on her T-shirt looking upset while Bolt runs into the arm of Slovak.

Many comments were left on the story including one woman who wrote: “Really now Usain! Some successful black men obviously suffer from a white woman complex.  You too?”  While another wrote: “Another one of our men snatched.”

Others were: “Out of all the girls on the island you pick a snowbunny.”  “These superstars will always disappoint if we depend on them to raise our racial identity.”

Another wrote: “They make he mingle with white girls.  She just divorce him and take aways his money.”

“I hope when he’s ready to settle down he chooses a beautiful Jamaican black woman….in the meantime have fun “responsibly”, cause some “pretty girls” just a wait fi lock u down for the wrong reasons.”

There were no positive comments for the sprinter nicknamed Lightning Bolt.

Should Usain follow his heart or follow his countrymen and supporters?
