Usain Bolt pulls out of Jamaica’s Nation Senior Trials

The Gleaner Jamaica – Jamaican sprinting star Usain Bolt has been pulled from the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA)/Supreme Ventures Limited National Senior Championships.

Bolt, who has an automatic qualification spot for this summer’s World Championships in Beijing, was originally entered to compete in the 100m later today but according to sources close to the athlete, the decision was taken not to run the athlete at the meet.

The withdrawal raises further concerns about Bolt’s fitness after the sprinter’s pedestrian start to the season.

Bolt had suggested that he was likely to compete at the National Championships as he felt in need of more races after a sluggish 20.29 seconds run in a 200m race at the New York Grand Prix last weekend.
