Don’t worry over late start, says Bolt

KINGSTON, Jamaica, CMC- Sprint sensation Usain Bolt is seeking to allay the fears of his fans who may be worried over his late start to the 2014 track and field season.

Bolt is yet to make his debut for the season with a quarter of the year already elapsed.

“There is never anything to worry about,” Bolt said in an interview with the Jamaica Observer.

“For me, I take my time throughout my seasons and you know the season is never perfect — niggles here, niggles there, but the coach will decide when I start and hopefully I’ll start very soon”.

Bolt, 27, the first man to win six Olympic gold medals in sprinting said the next two years will be crucial in his already glittering career.

“I am just taking my time and going through the season because in the Commonwealth year, I try to take it as easy as possible,” said Bolt who entered the 2012 London Olympics  and became the first runner to win back to back 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay titles.

“I want to run fewer races because the next couple of years will be very important”.
