Ready to race and retire

Usain Bolt is a genius like Muhammad Ali says Lord Coe

"That's all on Bolt", McMillan said.

Bolt made it clear he wants to bow out on a high from a career spanning a decade at the top, with the 100m final set for Saturday in London's Olympic Stadium, and the 4x100m relay for the following weekend.

De Grasse, who suffered a hamstring sprain during practice on Monday, was primed to challenge for multiple medals at the world track and field championships later this week in London.

Juliet Freud, head of event planning at The Brewery commented, "Such a prestigious occasion demanded a space to match, and The Porter Tun room provided exactly that".

There is no shortage of suitors in London to Bolt's sprint crown. "The last race with 9.95 shows I am going in right direction", he said. "It's definitely an area that I need to accept, take the responsibility and obviously take the backing that I get".

In a statement, the Canadian sprinter - who also won 200m silver in Rio past year - said that he had suffered a hamstring tear.

22 - How many years Michael Johnson held the men's 200m record of 19.32 seconds, before Bolt broke it in 2008 in Beijing - a benchmark he has since lowered to 19.19secs.

Muir broke Dame Kelly Holmes' 1500m record at London Stadium past year, but found the pace of Kenya's Faith Kipyegon and Ethiopia's Genzebe Dibaba too hot to handle over the final 800m in a tactical Olympic final in Rio.

Of course, number one would be held by sprinter Usain Bolt, 11 times world champion and eight times Olympic gold medal victor (would be nine if Jamaica 4x100 relay in Beijing-2008 were not suspended, due to Nesta Carter positive drug test), in addition to own 100- and 200-m world records and be the most charismatic athlete.

Bolt's old sparring partner Justin Gatlin was the man who beat Coleman.

"If I show up at a championships you know I'm fully confident and ready to go, and my coach, I'm ready to go". "I love competition, I thrive on competition, and I want people to run fast to push me. But if my son says that, I'm trying to move mountains". Bolt, who is on the verge of retirement, is the longtime world record holder.

"After sustaining an injury this week, I'm devastated to let my fans know that I will be unable to compete in London". We have experienced persons like Donald Quarrie around us and other athletes who are more experienced, but there is nothing like having a specialist in the area, for example, a sports psychologist, and I am sure the JAAA will be looking to improve the resources around the athletes as they have been doing.
