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.

Big-Game Experience Should See Mario Balotelli Get Chance vs. Real Madrid

Oct 22 2014 4:44am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It has been an incredibly bizarre start to the season for Liverpool. After last season's incredible performance in the Premier League, losing Luis Suarez was always going to make it tough for Brendan Rodgers' side to replicate those heroics. Yet despite barely getting out of second gear all season, they are ahead of the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal in the league table. While Chelsea and Manchester City are streaking a ...

Is Lag Slowing Your Swing Down?

Oct 20 2014 1:14pm CDT | Source: GolfWRX

In my last article, “Who is the Greatest Driver of the Ball, Ever?” we introduced the techniques that separate the longest drivers of the golf ball from most amateur and tour players. We established that the turning and thrusting system of the legs, pelvis and torso is the motor and primary energy generator in the golf swing. The supple arms wind tightly up and around this system on the backswing, and the ...

Royals rookie Terrance Gore thinks he’s faster than Usain Bolt — and he’s probably right

Oct 20 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: Washington Post Sports

These are heady days for Terrance Gore, a rookie who will play in his first World Series despite having had all of one official at-bat in the bigs. All because “that’s what speed do,” as their catchphrase puts it. Speed is something Gore, 23, knows all about. He stole 52 bases at Class AAA Omaha and in the majors after his Aug. 31 call-up. During the Royals’ postseason run, Gore has appeared in five games, each time as a pinch runner, and his ability to disrupt opponents on the basepaths ...

Gatlin takes criticism, accolades in stride

Oct 11 2014 1:56pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

Justin Gatlin is far more interested in winning races than popularity contests. Still, the American sprinter with a doping history doesn’t quite understand the backlash over his nomination for track and field athlete of the year. Gatlin went undefeated in the 100 and 200 metres this season, a year that didn’t include a major meet and one in which Usain Bolt chose to give his nagging injuries time to heal. But Gatlin’s inclusion for track’s annual award has angered ...
