Jamaicans and global track and field fans can now rest assured that it is not a news of ‘nine days wonder’ but a solid fact …..that Track and field superstar Usain Bolt will be back in business in ten days’ time.
The triple world record holder who hails from Trelawny, pulled out after his semi-final run at the JAAA/National Championships last Friday because of injury . He went to Switzerland where medical examinations have reportedly confirmed that he suffered a slight elongation.
Elongation refers to the situation where a muscle is stretched beyond its limit, in Bolt’s case his hamstring.
The examination was done by Bolt’s physician, Doctor Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt.
following his withdrawal from the National Championships the sprinter tweeted that he had suffered a grade two tear of his hamstring.
The meeting took place in Switzerland, because the German practitioner is currently in Evian, near the Franco-Helvetian border with the German national football team which is getting ready for the Euro 2016 semi-final.
The six time Olympic gold medallist is reportedly now heading to Munich to undergo additional examinations and begin the healing process.
He is expected to remain in Munich until the end of the week.
He is also expected to be back on the track as schedule at the Diamond League meeting in London later this month.
