Rumours that the world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt, withdrawing from Diamond league in Paris has a few supporters a bit shaky. Usain’s current season is not as good as the world has become accustomed to. Running a best time of 10.12 seconds over 100m and 20.13 secs for 200m, while his rivals Justin Gatlin and Tyson Gay have been in much better form.

Usain is currently suffering from a pelvic injury and according to – Usain will receive treatment in Munich on a blocked sacroiliac joint in the pelvis before resuming full training. Usain Bolt known as the “world’s fastest man”, record-holder of 100 m and 200 m stated that he will defend his titles at August’s World Championships in China.

Bolt recently withdrew from the 100m at the Jamaican national trials due to said injury. Despite Bolt not being at his peak performance, many are hopeful that Usain, an eight-time world champion and holder of six Olympic gold medals in his career, will again rise to the occasion in August and be victorious.
