Bolt Skips Training Camp Ahead World Tourney

Six-times Olympic gold medallist, Usain Bolt, will miss Jamaica’s training camp in Japan before the world athletics championships in Beijing later this month, the manager of the Caribbean island’s delegation said.

“He’s (Bolt) the only one who is not in camp, because you know he was undergoing some amount of examination while he was preparing at the same time,” manager Ludlow Watts told Reuters by telephone from Japan. “He was to come in (camp in Japan) but at the last moment it was decided that he should not come, considering that the team is just two days away from traveling to Beijing.

“It was considered necessary that he should perhaps go to the venue of the competition directly, rather than coming here.” Watts also said about 14 athletes, including reigning double sprint champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who were having problems obtaining Chinese visas through Italy, should get them by Monday (today) in Japan.

“It is being sorted, in other words by tomorrow it will be completely sorted because it is in the process and I expect it will be completed by Monday,” Watts said.
