New Delhi: US swimmer Ryan Lochte wasn't the only athlete who stirred a controversy at the Rio Olympics.

Legendary sprinter Usain Bolt too found himself at the receiving end of negative media coverage after pictures of him with a Brazilian student surfaced online.

Not just that, he was also spotted kissing a mystery woman in the VIP area of a Rio nightclub.

The 30-year-old was then accused of cheating on his girlfriend Kasi Bennett, especially since the two are expected to tie the knot.

Despite constant media scrutiny, Bolt has managed to keep his relationship under the wraps for several years.

As Bennett now finds herself at the center of a storm, here are six things you need to know about her:

  • The 26-year-old Bennett hails from the Jamaican town of Old Harbour.
  • Bolt first acknowledged the fact he was dating Kasi in January 2016. Though he didn't reveal her identity at the time.
  • The duo has been together in a steady relationship for two years now.
  • Kasi is the ultimate fashionista, as is evident from her Instagram account.
  • The fastest man on earth officially confirmed the romance on August 19.
  • Though she did not travel to Rio, Kasi cheered on her man throughout the Olympics run via social media.
