Bolt to compete only in 200m at Glasgow next year


By Patrick Ababio


Six-time Olympic champion, Usain Bolt hopes to win his first commonwealth title in Glasgow next year. But he will first have to discuss it with his coach Glen Mills.

Speaking to BBC radio, Bolt affirmed his wish: "It's on my to-do list". He however added "I really want to do it, but I never go against my coach."

Bolt further explained that he will compete in the 200m because its his favorite but that is if he is to chose between the 100m and 200m.

Not being too sure of what the future holds and what his coach's advice will be, he said: "We are going to discuss it, we are not fully sure if I will go but throughout the season, we will decide if that [Glasgow Commonwealth games] will be a good thing."

Bolt is a 'double treble' holder in the Olympics 100m, 200m and 4x100m from the 2008 Beijing Olympics and 2012 London Olympics.
