Bolt wants to dominate till Rio Games

Jamaican sprint sensation Usain Bolt has a gold medal haul like no other but the global superstar says he is far from finished yet.

Three golds from the London Olympics in the 100, 200 and 4x100M relay mirrored his success in the Beijing Games of 2008.

But now the 26-year-old, who will race the 200m at the Paris leg of the Diamond League at the Stade de France on Saturday, has his sights set on further “dominating” the sport. “I want to dominate sprinting until the Rio Games,” said Bolt. “To dominate the competition, remain the best despite all these young, ambitious sprinters appearing on the scene, all wanting to beat me.

“I remember asking (US track legend) Michael Johnson the year he retired from sport what he thought of his career. He explained to me his pride at having been able to dominate his sport all the way to the end. My objective is the same.”

Bolt explained that a love of “competition” was key to his motivation.
