Nine-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt announces plans to open Sports Clinic in Jamaica

No world records; it's all beyond me now. Right now it is just for me to go out there and leave with a big bang as much as possible

  • Nine-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt has announced plans to open a sports clinic in Jamaica
  • Bolt, the world’s fastest man so far, is now turning his attention to the World Championships in London next year
  • Bolt has wild card entries for both the 100m and 200m at the August 5-13 World Championships by virtue of winning both events at last year’s world championships

September 15,2016: Nine-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt has announced plans to open a sports clinic in Jamaica after retiring from the track and field.

The Jamaican, who last month brought down the curtains on his Olympic career after sweeping the sprint titles in the third successive Games, says he wants to address injury concerns plaguing young athletes, reports CMC.

“One of the things that I am working towards is trying to open a sports clinic in Jamaica. That’s one thing that’s always on my mind,” said Bolt, who set the 100 meter and 200m world records of 9.58 and 19.19 seconds in 2009.

“Especially for the youth in track and field because I think injury has always been a problem for youth coming up, and I also would like them to get better care. I also would like to stick with the track and field and stay as close as possible to track and field, so that’s one thing.”

Bolt, the world’s fastest man so far, is now turning his attention to the World Championships in London next year, before officially retiring from the sport at the age of 31.

He is planning to only contest the 100m in London but says his coach has other ideas.

“That’s the plan, but I still have to discuss it with my coach,” Bolt told Television Jamaica on Tuesday.

“(Glen Mills) still wants me to do the double, but I’ve told him I would really like to just do the 100m, so at the start of the season we’ll decide exactly what (to focus on), but that’s what’s on my mind.”

Bolt has wild card entries for both the 100m and 200m at the August 5-13 World Championships by virtue of winning both events at last year’s world championships.

He says he is not planning to break records in London.

“No world records; it’s all beyond me now. Right now it is just for me to go out there and leave with a big bang as much as possible,” said Bolt.

“I just want to go to the World Championships, do my best as always and stay on a certain level and that’s the plan.” (IANS)
