The Worlds Fastest Man Usain Bolt, To Retire In August
Usain Bolt, the worlds fastest man has said he will be retiring from athletics in August this year. Bolt who spoke at the Laures World Sports Awards in Monaco said there is nothing more to achieve as he has achieved everything he dreamed of.
“I’ve just done everything I wanted to do in the sport,” Bolt told Journalists.
“I asked Michael Johnson the same question, ‘why did you retire when you were on top?’. He said the same — he had done everything he had wanted to do in athletics so there was no reason to stay in the sport. Now I understand what he means.
“I just wanted to run and to be part of it. I had to take it easy because I wasn’t at the level I would usually be. It was the first time I had competed at this time of the year.”
Bolt was recently stripped of his 2008 olympic relay gold after a trace of banned substance was found in team mate Nesta Carter’s re-tested sample, damaging his ‘treble treble’ record
