100 metres and 200 metres world champion, Usain Bolt hopes to participate at the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil but his future after that is uncertain. He revealed that he is not sure he would be able to compete at the 2017 World Championships in London

Speaking during an interview with BBC Radio 5 live on Thursday, the Jamaican sprinter said:

I really want to run at London, but I think the sport is not as fun as it used to be…It’s more taxing. I can’t enjoy it as much as I want to because I have to be sacrificing a lot more, so, uh, it’s 50-50, I’m telling you. […] After Rio, as I said, my sponsors want me to go one more year, but my coach said, “Listen to me, if you’re not going to be serious about going to the World Championships in London,” then I shouldn’t do it.

Bolt currently has ten World Championships gold medals to his credit.
