Usain Bolt fully fit for Olympics
Usain Bolt's agent has reassured fans that the world's fastest man will be fully fit for London 2012.
With 17 days to go until the start of the Olympics in London, the Jamaican's agent Ricky Simms has tried to dismiss fears that the record-breaking sprinter would not be fit to defend his titles.
Bolt has been struggling with muscle injuries for a while, but according to Simms it was just "muscle tightness in his hamstring" and his body is now "back to normal".
Bolt recently visited sports doctor Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt in Germany to treat the problem, and it seems to have worked as he is now back in full training.
Concerns were raised when he was beaten in both the 100m and 200m by fellow Jamaican Yohan Blake, but Simms is confident he will be back to his best by August 4, when the 100m heats begin.
"During the trials he had a slightly tight hamstring, which is probably why he held back," Simms continued, "he was just protecting it."
Simms finished the update by saying that Bolt requires "a little treatment and rest, and then he can train hard next week so he is ready for the Games" which is great news for fans and organisers, but perhaps less so for fellow sprinters such as Tyson Gay and Osafa Powell.
