• Usain Bolt Plans to Break 200m Wolrd Record in 2014

Posted by:

With no major global championships in 2014, the Sprint King, Usain Bolt, says he wants to break his 200m world record during the 2014 outdoor season.

Bolt speaking at the sponsorship event on Friday in Tokyo, Japan said:  "We'll see what happens. Hopefully I can stay injury-free and everything will go well this season and I can break the world record."

"It's all about not getting injured this season," said Bolt. "That's my focus, and then we're going to try to push myself and hopefully get the world record and it will all work out.

"We're going to to run a lot more 200 this season and we'll see if we can get it done."

Bolt set the 200 world record 19.19 in 2009 at the Berlin World championships final.

Usain Bolt may have little left to prove to the world of athletics but he has set himself a 2014 target of breaking his own 200m record of 19.19 seconds.

Speaking on Friday at a sponsor event, Bolt said: "Hopefully everything will go well with training and I can go out there and break a world record ... it's all about not getting injured this season."

Bolt retained his 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay crowns at the London 2012 Olympics and this year's World Championships in Moscow.

Though he had planned on retiring in 2016, Bolt has recently hinted he could instead bow out after the 2017 World Championships in London.
