Jamaican sprint king Usain Bolt is set to return to action tonight for the Diamond League meeting in Lausanne. Usain will line up in the 200m event but has opted out of the 100m leaving his countryman Yohan Blake as the favourite over the shorter distance.
Usain Bolt headed to London earlier this year for the 2012 Olympics with many questioning whether or not he was fit enough or in the right frame of mind to repeat his sprint domination. However, Bolt silenced the doubters by winning both the 100m and 200m before completing his hat-trick with gold in the 4x100m.
There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the future of Usain Bolt with many suggesting that he will change events for the 2016 Olympics. It has been claimed that he could be tempted to run the 400m or even turn to the long jump like many great sprinters before him.
Meanwhile, Usain Bolt himself has claimed that he would love to have a trial for English football team Manchester United claiming that he could be the perfect replacement for aging wing wizard Ryan Giggs. What will Usain Bolt turn to next? Watch this space.
