Holy Moly, Usain Bolt Is In Danger Of Missing The Olympics

Holy Moly, Usain Bolt Is In Danger Of Missing The Olympics
By Gavin Cooney Updated

Usain Bolt: the only man in the world to make a virtue out of finishing quickly.

This writer's insecurities aside, we bring you the rather alarming news that Bolt is in danger of missing the Olympics following a hamstring tear. Bolt withdrew from the 100m final of the Jamaican Olympic Trials yesterday, citing the reason as a mild hamstring tear. It's a grade one tear, which is the mildest form of hamstring tear.

Bolt has yet to qualify for the Games, and needed to compete in the 100m national finals to do so as the competition serves as the selection trials. Bolt tweeted to say that he is hoping to prove his fitness in order to compete at the Anniversary Games in London:

Bolt must merely prove to the selection committee he is fit enough to be picked. This is officially termed by the Jamaican federation as an athlete being capable of proving " their world ranking form prior to the final submission of the entries for the competition". A failure to adequately recover will see Bolt cutting things extremely tight to make the Games.

Bolt promptly set about allaying fears he might miss the Olympics by post a picture of said hamstring being treated:

Here's hoping Bolt can heal as quickly as he can run.
