Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt in limbo — how slow will he go?
Usain Bolt, the ever-popular world-record holder in 100 and 200 meters, has been surpassed this year by fellow Jamaican Yohan Blake. Is it his hamstring? His back? Or is a London surprise in store? Usain Bolt must have a bad hamstring, which would explain why the dazzling sprinter who set three world records while electrifying crowds at the Beijing Olympics lost twice to compatriot Yohan Blake at the recent Jamaican Olympic trials. It also would explain why Bolt, who previously hadn't lost a 200-meter race other than a qualifying heat since 2007, afterward visited his longtime sports doctor in Germany for treatment and then withdrew from the final London Olympics tuneup meet last week in Monaco.
