Bolt’s agent claims world sprint champ feels well

Usain Bolt (pictured right) is back in full training and “feeling good,” his agent said Tuesday, after concerns over an injury following successive defeats at the Jamaican Olympic trials. Ricky Simms said that Bolt is fit as he prepares to defend his titles in the 100, 200 and 4x100 relay at the London Games, which open July 27. The world record-holder in both sprint distances, Bolt lost to Yohan Blake in the 100 and 200 at his national trials and had his right hamstring stretched out by a trainer after the 200. Bolt then pulled out of the Monaco Diamond League meet on July 20 with what his coach called “a slight problem,” but Simms downplayed concerns that the injury could affect the defense of his three Olympic titles in London. – Associated Press
