• Usain Bolt withdraws from Jamaican trials, his next race is in Paris on July 4
According to Jamaica-Gleaner report today, world's fastest man Usain Bolt has pulled out from the Jamaican national trials that is set to start on Thursday.
Bolt, who has a wild card to compete at this year's Beijing world championships in 100m and 200m, was entered earlier this week to run the 100m at Jamaican national championships, but according to a reliable source the athlete has withdrawn from the competition.
However, absence of Bolt will not make the Jamaican championships less exciting as most of the Jamaican track and field stars will line up set to battle for the top three spots and a spot on a Jamaican Beijing world championships team.
Usain Bolt will next appear on the track on July 4 at Diamond League meet in Paris, where he will contest in the 200m.
