Since the end of London Olympics there have been many rumors about Usain Bolt doing Long Jump and maybe even a 400m in the near future.
To a question about next Olympics six-time gold medallist Bolt answered confidently:
“Yes definitely I will be there (in Rio), as long as I'm fit and I'm ready,” Bolt said to media in a pre meet conference in Lausanne on Wednesday.
“It'll be a little bit harder but I'm looking forward to it.” Bolt said to media in a pre meet conference in Lausanne on Wednesday.
With a possibility of Bolt in other events there might be a good chance to see new records fall.
“It's just about making different goals, there's a lot of things I can do in the sport,” Bolt said.
“My coach wants me to do 400 metres, I want to try long jump.
“I could always try to aim for the records again, so there's different things but after the season we'll decide what we want to do and work on that next season.”
Usain Bolt's is entered to run 200m on August 23 in IAAF Diamond League meeting Lausanne.
