Bolt priority is injury free season
17 Apr 2015 21:09
Usain Bolt declared himself virtually unbeatable today but downplayed expectations for 2015, saying his main priority was staying injury free ahead of next year's Rio de Janeiro Olympics.
The Jamaican world record holder missed most of 2014 with injury and American rival Justin Gatlin went unbeaten in the sprints.
But Bolt said he was not worried about Gatlin, whom his coach already has declared no match for the six-time gold medal winner.
"He knows exactly what he is doing, so I don't doubt anything my coach says," Bolt told reporters in Rio, where he will compete in a challenge race on Sunday.
"When it comes to rivals there are seven people beside me in the lanes that count. When I am in great shape, I tell you guys, I worry about nobody.
"When I am at my best it is definitely almost impossible to beat me so all I need to do is be at my best and I'll be OK."
