Usain Bolt’s target for Rio 2016 is to go sub 19″ on 200m

Usain BoltUsain Bolt decided to drive us crazy changing idea about his retirment each month; right now, it seems he will leave the track soon, Rio could be his last Olympic competition.

Neverthless, he has a precise idea how to conclude these Olympic Games and, if he will manage to realise it, his name will persist in the Track&Field yearbook for several years.

After the golden medals gained in the 100m, 200m and in the 4×100 during Beijing 2008 and London 2012, the Jamaican athlete would like to award golden medals during this edition as well equaling the Finnish middle-distance runner Paavo Nurim and “the son of the wind” Carl Lewis with 9 Olympic golds.

The run-up to three golden medals is not the only target for these Olympic Games; in fact, lighting Bolt would like to better his World Record on 200m, currently  19″19, lowering it to 19″. This edition is looking to be quite interesting for what concerns sprint, who knows if the Jamaican lighting will manage to sight his objective giving to the audience an unique show.
