After lot of travelling in recent weeks now a quiet period is planned for sprinting star Usain Bolt. He was in Kenya, Mexico and last weekend in Monte Carlo.
Before two weeks he started with light training, now a more tougher period should come in months December and January. One break is planned during his 9.58 Super Party on December 4-5 in St. Ann (his US 200 m rival Wallace Spearmon confirmed his attendance). During the Monaco Gala weekend Bolt confirmed his aims for 2010. “I want to win all my races. It is probably possible that if I will be in top shape I can improve my world records. But mainly I want to enjoy my season. I look forward to more head-to-head races with my rivals in the Diamond League. After 2010 it will be more serious for me with trying to defend my Berlin and Beijing titles. Only after that I will be closer to be the legend what is my long term goal,” Bolt said. German Sports News Agency SID asked Arne Ljungqvist the IOC Medical Commission chairman and former IAAF Vice-President and one of the leaders in fight against doping about Usain Bolt. “He is absolutely clean. We have so many dates and figures from Usain Bolt from recent tests, there is no way for any mistake,” Ljungqvist was quoted. Jamaica‘s Sports Minister Olivia Grange has congratulated him for winning the Athlete of the Year award. A replica of the record-breaking shoes of Bolt is to be auctioned by the Institute of Caribbean Studies (ICS) to fund its new LifeSEED’s Youth Vision project in Bolt’s district of Sherwood Content in Trelawny.
