Bolt returning to London
LONDON – Usain Bolt will prepare for the Rio de Janeiro Olympics by returning to the site of the last games for the London Diamond League meet.
The Jamaican will compete in July’s Anniversary Games, four years after winning three Olympic gold medals in the Olympic Stadium in the 100, 200 and 4×100-meter relay races.
Organizers say Bolt will appear on July 22, but didn’t specific in which races.
In a statement, Bolt said: “It is one of my last races before the Olympic Games in Rio. It will be good to return to the Olympic Stadium on the Friday night and get more of the special atmosphere that the fans always produce.”
The stadium is being redeveloped to accommodate Premier League club West Ham from August while retaining athletics facilities.
