Usain Bolt will be granted all the time he needs to prove himself worthy of a contract at the Central Coast Mariners. However, the retired athletics superstar will have to prove himself like any other player, officials at the struggling Australian football club have said. The Mariners confirmed Tuesday the Olympic sprint champion would train "indefinitely" with the club, which finished bottom of the 10-team A-League last season and operates in one of the country's smallest football markets.The Mariners, however, defended the move Wednesday, saying it had the potential to reap huge long-term benefits should Bolt make the grade.National governing body Football Federation Australia had also endorsed the "commercial arrangement" with Bolt and would back the player's A-League adventure if he won a contract, Mielekamp added.
