After a phenomenal year, Usain Bolt has pulled out of the Daegu Pre-Championship Meeting in South Korea this month citing fatigue, organisers say. His withdrawal means he is also likely to miss the Shanghai Golden Grand Prix which takes place five days earlier.
“Bolt’s agent on Wednesday informed us that he cannot take part in the competition in Daegu due to his not-good physical condition,” said an official from the Daegu organising body. “We feel really sorry not to have him at the competition given the huge publicity effect he can bring to any athletic event.”
The “Thunderbolt” strikes again! Usain Bolt shatters his own world record (19.30 in 2008 Beijing Olympics) in the 200m race, clocking 19.19.
Usain Bolt delivered — 9.58! He broke his own world record in the 100m from the 2009 Beijing Olympics. Tyson Gay couldn’t catch up to him. Usain is the fastest man in the world. Bolt shattered the world record at the 12th IAAF World Championships in Athletics in Berlin, Germany!
