The fastest man on earth has set his retirement date

Usain Bolt is set to hang up his spikes after the 2017 World Championship.

USAIN BOLT INITIALLY planned to retire from sprinting after the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro but the world’s fastest man has changed his mind and wishes to add another medal to his already overflowing trophy cabinent.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Bolt said that he has been convinced to continue his career for one more year after the next Olympics and compete in the World Championship in London.

“My sponsor has asked me to go on for another year; to 2017 and London,” Bolt said.

“But I’ll be doing one event, the 100. I’ve already discussed it with my coach. I can concentrate on that, and on retiring on a winning note.”

That is great news for both hardcore athletics fans and casual followers because Bolt is probably the only track and field athlete in the world who commands an audience every time he races.

Bolt also said he was hopeful of breaking his own 100m record, which he set at the World Championship in Berlin in 2009.
