Usain Bolt will compete in Rio
The six-time Olympic gold medalist received medical exemption
Usain Bolt‘s quest for more Olympic gold is back on, as expected.
The Jamaican Olympic Committee released its delegation for next month’s Rio Games on Monday, and Bolt is among the selections even though an injury kept him from formally qualifying at his country’s national championships.
Bolt withdrew from Jamaica’s national meet on July 1 with a slight tear in his left hamstring, doing so just before the 100-meter final. The 100- and 200-meter world-record holder is scheduled to compete in London on July 22 to confirm his fitness level for the Rio Games.
