Bolt plans 7 races in DL
Athletics superstar number one Usain Bolt will return to regular training next week as he starts his preparation for the 2010 season.
TrackAlerts.com informs that that he will compete in seven races in the new IAAF Diamond League next season, that according to coach Mills, will be at the top of their agenda. “The Diamond League is our major project next year, in which he’ll be running seven races between the 100 and 200 meters, that’s what we are going to be focusing on. Competing in the Diamond League is our number one priority we’ll then see how the rest of the season develops and we’ll take it from there.” Meanwhile, the triple world record holder who has had an extremely busy schedule since cutting short the 2009 season to return home to rest, is now in Africa and is due back home next week when coach Glen Mills is expecting him to show up for training. “We are expecting Usain to start training when he returns from Kenya on the first week in November,” he said. Bolt also believes it will take a couple of years to convince some people he is breaking world records without doping. “I‘ll continue running fast, I am clean without a doubt,” Bolt said Thursday at a conservation event in London. “As soon as you start running fast there‘s going to be a problem. It‘s going to take a couple of years for people to start believing that you‘re actually clean.
“If you continue running fast and doing it clean and then, over a period of time, all the tainting will go away. People will continue to say it until that period of time.” The Globe and Mail writes.
