Bolt: ‘I can go faster’


Fresh from setting a pair of world records, Usain Bolt is ready to go faster. The Jamaican sprinter, who took part in a ceremonial kickoff celebrating the start of the Spanish league at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium this weekend, said he can improve on his record times of 9.58 seconds in the 100 meters and 19.19 in the 200. “I think I can go faster, but I leave that up to my coach,” Bolt said Sunday. “We analyze each race. We try to go through the season without risking getting injured. We see what we can do to go further and achieve great things in sport.” Bolt was in the Spanish capital Saturday to attend Real Madrid’s opening match of the season.
