Usain Bolt injured ahead of RIO

Six-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt has suffered an injury scare ahead of Rio after tearing a hamstring at the Olympic trials at the National Stadium.

Bolt sustained the grade-one tear during the first round of the 100m and withdrew after winning his semi-final.

He is still expected to defend his 100 and 200m titles as Jamaica’s selection policy allows medical exemptions.

Bolt is now being treated and is aiming to return for the London Anniversary Games on July 22.

In the double world champion’s absence, the 100m final in Kingston was won by London 2012 silver medallist Yohan Blake in a time of 9.95 seconds.
