Watch: Usain Bolt's Girlfriend Couldn't Contain Herself Cheering on Her Bae

But his mom wasn't as impressed.

Published August 19, 2016

Usain Bolt's girlfriend just couldn't contain her overwhelming pride.

Mama Bolt, on the other hand, didn't seem too impressed.

Before and after watching her boyfriend dominate the 200-meter final Thursday night en route to winning yet another Olympic gold medal in Rio de Janeiro, Kasi Bennett let her love for the world's fastest man pour out all over Twitter for the world to see.

Before the 200-meter final started, Bennett tweeted:

And after Bolt turned in a 19.78 to win the event, she followed with:

As a matter of fact, Kasi has been cheering on Usain all week and was more than there for her man dominating the 100-meter final on Sunday and again for his 200-meter heats.

Meanwhile, Bolt's mom, Jennifer Bolt, who was live and in attendance in Rio to watch her son Thursday night, didn't seem all too impressed with his easy win — despite it securing his triple-double of three consecutive Olympic 100-meter and three 200-meter gold medals.

Her unenthusiastic reaction spawned Twitter reaction of its own.

Hey, maybe it's because Bolt's mom has seen this story unfold seven times prior, as Thursday night's victory marked his eighth career Olympic gold medal.

That and Bolt admittedly thought he could've ran the race faster.

Lots to be proud of.
