BOLT’S LIGHTNING VISIT TO DONEGAL STILL ON THE CARDS


first_imgThe Irish manager of the world’s fastest man has said a visit to Donegal is still very much on the cards.Usain Bolt is still Donegal-bound!But Milford man Ricky Simms says that like Usain Bolt, it will be a lightning visitRicky is a director of Pace Sports Management and manages the likes of Bolt and Mo Farah. Jamaican star Bolt revealed he wanted to see Ireland in 2012.Ricky told Donegal Daily he is still keen to bring Bolt to Ireland but it’s a matter of fitting the date into his schedule.“It may be next year or the year after but I am still very keen to bring him to Donegal.“If we had an appointment in Europe then we could hopefully pencil it in. “It will be a matter of flying in early in the morning and out that night,” he said.Ricky admitted that Usain doesn’t know a lot about Ireland but knows Irish athletics boss Patsy McGonagle well.“I have to say he doesn’t ask me about Ireland a lot. He’s more likely to ask me if Rihanna has called and probably not Daniel O’Donnell.“But we would like to go to Donegal for Patsy McGonagle and everyone in Donegal.“We could do a questions and answers session or something like that and it could be great fun,” he said. Simms, who negotiates contracts for Bolt and other top athletes, travels the world with the running stars.Last Sunday he attended the Premiere of Class of 92 – the story of some of Manchester United’s top players in London.“It was a really enjoyable night. I’m actually a Liverpool fan but I enjoy watching all teams.“It was great to see all the players. I saw Paul Scholes and he could have been from West Donegal,” said Ricky.
