Jamaican sprinter and current world fastest man Usain Bolt is curious as who will replace him as the world fastest track. Bolt confidently said that no one will able to break his record at the world athletics and no one knows about his last major race in August in London.
When asked on Monday if he was afraid of losing his last race before retirement, World fastest man Bolt said “My coach always finds a way (for me to win). I’m not worried.”
Talking that he was looking forward to the years ahead, Bolt said “I’m definitely excited just to see sit and watch and to see who’s going to be the next Olympic Champion in the 100, 200 meters. There’re a lot of young stars coming up. It’s exciting to see who is really going to step up to be a champion.”
Bolt has won all the major titles for nine years in 100, 200 meters and knowing that he’ll be finishing race in less than two months and makes everything bittersweet.
On Wednesday, Bolt is competing in his ninth and last Golden Spike running the 100 meters in the eastern Czech city of Ostrava. “Every meet will be emotional. I know it will be my last time competing. It’s an emotional season.”
Bolt like the Golden Spike because its fast track and the rise are always packed, even if it’s rainy or cold. The only other race he’s scheduled before the worlds are the Diamond League meet in Monaco on July 21st.
Bolt doesn’t leave athletics after his last race. He will remain part of his racing group in Jamaica. “When it comes to coaching, my coach really pushed me hard to try to get into coaching. Maybe next season I’ll be at the track a lot. I won’t be a coach but I’ll oversee and watch,” said Bolt.
