Six-times Olympic gold medallist and world fastest man, Usain Bolt says he is ready to put on a good show in the sprint relay at the Commonwealth Glasgow 2014, after recovering from minor foot surgery and a hamstring injury.
The Jamaican Athlete, who was out for two months missed training after surgery on his left foot in March, he said he is back in sub 10-second shape after training twice a day to get ready for the event in Glasgow which starts on Wednesday.
“It has been rough, but I have been through it a couple times so I know what it takes to get back so I’m just pushing on and working towards what’s necessary for this season,”
“I went to see my doctor and he said the best thing to do was to actually get the surgery done because it would bother me over my career, so it was best to get it done now, so I just did it because I considered this my off season.
“It definitely one of those things so I got it out of the way and right now I’m just trying to get back and that’s the key right now and that’s the focus,” Bolt said on Tuesday morning during a training session.
His coach Glen Mills said that twice a day workouts were necessary to get him in good shape and ready to compete after he missed a lot of foundation work.
“Usain has lost quite a significant amount of training time and in his desire to at least run a couple races in the summer, he needs to get a sufficient amount of sessions, we have to double up training morning and evening,” Mills said.
“The most important thing is i don’t want to miss the Commonwealth Games. Bolt concluded
