Usain Bolt arrived in Glasgow over the weekend, to race in the Commonwealth Games 2014.
Not wanting to take anybody else’s place on the Jamaican team, Bolt chose to run in the 4 x 100m relay.
Bolt has been recovering from injury and will be competing in Glasgow as part of his comeback to racing.
Usain will compete in four track meets in August:
August 1 & 2 – Commonwealth Games 4x100m, Glasgow
August 17 – Mano a Mano 100m, Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janeiro
August 23 – LOTTO Kamila Skolimowska’s Memorial 100m, Warsaw
August 28 – Weltklasse 100m, Zurich
One the most naturally gifted athlete the world has ever seen, Usain St Leo Bolt, confirmed his tremendous talents by winning a phenomenal three gold medals and breaking three world records at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China.
Bolt became the first man in Olympic history to win both the 100m and 200m races in world record times and then as part of the 4x100m team that also smashed the world record later in the meet.
He created history again and became a legend at the 2012 Olympic Games in London by defending all three Olympic titles with 100m, 200m and 4x100m victories, the latter in a new world record time of 36.84 secs.
