Bolt To Race In Commonwealth Games

Last update: 27/06/2014
BEIJING, June 27 (Bernama) -- Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt announced on Friday he would compete at the Commonwealth Games, to be held from July 23 to Aug 3 at Glasgow, Scotland, China's Xinhua news agency reported.

Bolt wrote on his official website he wouldn't attend the Jamaican Championships this weekend, but he is "available for selection for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and have submitted the relevant documentation."

But the 100 and 200-meter world record holder said he might only attend the relay event.

"I do not wish to take the place of anyone who qualifies this weekend in an individual event but am available for relay duty if the selectors feel I can be an asset to the Jamaican team in Glasgow," explained the 27-year-old.
