Usain Bolt Back To The Future


BEIJING: The fastest man on the planet, Usain Bolt is back at the Bird’s Nest Stadium. A place where it all began in 2008 Beijing Olympics a man became a legend.

The 21 year-old, Bolt started his illustrious career at 2008 Beijing Olympics as a champion and never looked back. The highest paid athlete on the tracks, Bolt won 100m and 200m at the 2008 Beijing Olympics after leading his Jamaican team to the glory in 4x100m relay race, since then he has won all the Olympics Gold and World titles he has contested despite one in 2011 at Daegu where he was disqualified for a false start in a 100m race.

Recently Bolt tweeted:


Now the question is that if the Jamaican Sprint King is ready to take on the pressure at the same track where his glory days started, because for this time in the IAAF World Athletics Championships starting from 22nd August he will face a serious challenge from the American Justin Gatlin who is in the form of his life. The 33 year-old Gatlin has also won a Gold medal in 100m race at 2004 Olympics, but he has also faced two doping bans one from 2006 and the other from 2010.

Talking about the doping violation, Bolt said that this is the responsibility of an athlete to come clean while he is contesting for the title. While I’m on the track I just want to do my best and run fast, it is all about to maintain focus and playing clean sports.
