De Grasse injures hamstring, out of worlds

Iconic sprinter Bolt is confident he can retire with another 100m world title

"To not have this opportunity is unimaginable to me but it is the reality I am now faced with".

Whether he can do what he usually does at a big event, which is win three gold medals, depends on his level of fitness and more importantly his urge.

There exists a mutual respect between the two old rivals to the extent the Jamaican was horrified by the booing and jeering of the American prior to the 100m final in Rio a year ago, and then again at the medal ceremony. "I'm just going out there to win this Saturday". The sprinter star canadian has withdrawn from the iaaf world Championships in London, Wednesday.

He has only beaten Bolt once in his long career - at a Diamond League meeting in Rome in 2013.

A homecoming farewell for Farah Will we see the Mobot once again at London Stadium? But an ultrasound the following morning revealed a small tear. Bolt has always admitted to his love for cricket and even played in an exhibition match in 2014 against Yuvraj Singh during his maiden India visit. "That is it", Bolt said.

With the 2017 World Championships starting this week, it is of course our last chance to see the fastest man on the planet, Usain Bolt, in action. Bolt hasn't forgotten that race.

"I never knew that I am going to achieve records in one championship - all I wanted was to be 200-metre Olympic champion".

General consensus was he was referring to De Grasse.




"I can't approach it any different". "But there is absolutely zero disrespect from Andre to Usain".

And Bolt, who holds the world records in the 100m and 200m, insisted dopers are endangering the future of athletics.

"For me, I will go with Zlatan", he said when asked whether himself or the veteran should be signed.

Yet his preparations were hit when close pal and British high jumper Germaine Mason was killed in a motorbike accident in April following a night out with Bolt in Jamaica, and Bolt wants to bow out winning for his friend.

However, de Grasse has been ruled out of the world meet due to a hamstring injury. Each final came with a US$50,000 first-place prize. He said De Grasse was determined.

"I really feel for Andre", said Athletics Canada coach Glenroy Gilbert. A few weeks later, he won the 100 meters at the Toronto International Track and Field Games. "I think that's when he'll probably be a little bit more emotional".

"But at the same time, I wish I could have left it and focused on the 100m and the 200m, but I didn't think I would, just because of the fact that I am doing so great in the event".
