Ronnie O'Sullivan inspired by Usain Bolt

Ronnie O’Sullivan has taken inspiration from Usain Bolt as he enters the new decade with a new approach to his snooker.

The ‘Rocket’, like Jamaican sprinter Bolt, has no peers in his sport, but his drive for perfection has contributed to the psychological demons the 34-year-old has needed to deal with since turning professional in the early 1990s.

After threatening to the quit the sport on several occasions, O’Sullivan’s love for snooker is well and truly alive, albeit with an emphasis on entertaining rather than crushing all opponents.

“Usain Bolt has proved you don’t have to be so intense about everything you do,” said O’Sullivan.

“You can make things fun and still break world records and be the best at what you do in the world.

“I think I’ve performed my best when I’ve had that attitude.”
