(Jamaica Observer) Having established two individual world records Usain Bolt said he would not be attempting to break his 9.58 and 19.19 clocking times to end his final season in glory.“I have already said it, this season is for the fans,” said Bolt, during a JN Racers Grand Prix press briefing yesterday at the Jamaica Pegasus hotel.
“People always want to see us break world records. But the fact is, I am the world record holder, so there is no reason to want to break the world record,” Bolt reiterated, while he shared the podium with some of the best athletes in modern track and field.
World record holders David Rudisha of Kenya and South Africa's Wayde van Niekerk, along with America's most decorated runner, Allyson Felix; Great Britain's distance king Mo Farah; sprint hurdler Sally Pearson of Australia and triple jump sensation Christian Taylor of the USA, formed what is probably the greatest assembly of stars in one room at any one time.
“I always try my best to go out there and push myself. But to me, this season is all about just trying to win and continue winning and end my career on a winning note. So that's really my focus this season to try and get everything right,” Bolt noted.
