Bolt wants to dominate the tracks until Rio 2016

Jul 3 2013, 6:56am CDT | by

Paris, July 3 (IANS/CMC) Sprint icon Usain Bolt says he wants to dominate the tracks until the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Paris, July 3 (IANS/CMC) Sprint icon Usain Bolt says he wants to dominate the tracks until the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Bolt made this announcement at a news conference in Paris Tuesday as he prepares to compete at the Areva meeting here Saturday.

"I want to continue dominating until the next Olympics. I have to work hard, train hard and stay focused," Bolt said.

"I've won everything already, but now it's to show that I can be a dominant sprinter."

The Jamaican sprinter looks to be back in shape after his form was questioned following a defeat by American sprinter Justin Gatlin at the Golden Gala on June 6.

Bolt has recovered since then by winning the 200 metres at the Bislett Games and running 9.94 on home soil over 100 metres at the Jamaican trials on June 21.

"I figured out what I needed to do to get back on target," said the six times Olympic champion.

"I've been working hard; I've been focused; I've been sacrificing a lot, so now I'm on target."

Bolt is preparing for next month's World Championships in Moscow by racing the 200 metres in Paris, the ninth leg of the Diamond League.

He will face compatriots Warren Weir and Nickel Ashmeade, along with former 200-metre European champion Christophe Lemaitre of France.

"I really enjoy running big races before World Championships. It tells you where you are and tells you what you need to work on," said Bolt, who turns 27 in August.

"I know these young guys are stepping up and they're going to come running and pushing you to the limits."

After the Areva meeting, Bolt will compete in the 100 and the 4x100 relay in London July 26-27, his final major meeting before the Worlds.

In a massive upset, the MK Dons knocked Manchester United out of the Capital One Cup with a 4-0 victory. The League One team were led by William Grigg and Benik Afobe, who scored two goals each in the dramatic win.
