Bolt not to target 3 individual golds in 2012
Adjust font size:

Triple Olympic champion Usain Bolt rejected the possibility of running the three individual events of 100, 200 and 400 meters in the 2012 London Olympics.

Bolt, winner of 100, 200 and 4x100m relay in last year's Beijing Games, said he would do either two of them but not all, according to Reuters.

"I never actually said that I could run three events, because that's a lot of load and I really doubt whether I can do that," the 22-year-old Bolt said at the launch of his track club in the Jamaican capital late on Tuesday.

"I don't think that I could do that at one track meet, so somebody got it wrong along the line. I may be doing 100 and 200, or 200 and 400, but not all three."

The club, which coaches athletes for the 100, 200, 400 and 400 hurdles, has 23 athletes on its roster, including two female sprinters. It has attracted athletes from around the Caribbean as well as from as far away as Gambia and South Africa.
