Training for the Olympics is the top priority for Jamaica's Usain Bolt as he looks to hold onto his title as World's Fastest Man and so he is looking to dump all things that could be distractions from his life. Tops among his distractions, his girlfriend, Lubica Slovak (helpfully, originally from Slovakia.)

The pair had been seeing each other for about six months and about a month ago a leaked photo of the pair (left) kissing sparked a heated national discussion about race. It seems many of Bolt's fellow Jamaicans were very upset that he was seeing a white woman, even though she's been living in Jamaica for over 12 years now.

With the Olympics rapidly approaching and new high-tech suits to debut in London that can shave upwards of .023 seconds from sprinters' time, Bolt apparently doesn't have time to become a lightning rod of attention. Alas!

Love apparently DOESN'T conquer all...
