Usain Bolt Hangs Up Spikes For 2010

By Rojo Grande On August - 10 - 2010

Only days after his shocking 100-meter loss to Tyson Gay in Stockholm's Diamond League meet, Usain Bolt has announced his season is over.

Citing lower back problems, Bolt's agent, Ricky Simms announced, "With a view to his future career, we believe further treatment to loosen his back, followed by a period of rest will be in his best interest".

Bolt has been generating criticism in the Jamaican press for his poor showing in Stockholm and in a previous narrow win in Paris.

The criticism centers around his casual approach to the current "down year" (no global championships in 2010) and his reputed night life.

Bolt had been scheduled for two more Diamond League meets in Zurich and Brussels.

In a statement to his many followers, Bolt said, "2011 and 2012 are very important championship years and I hope to be back fully fit and healthy".
