Injured Bolt in Commonwealth blow

Sprinter Usain Bolt has withdrawn from the Jamaican Commonwealth Games team because of a muscle strain.
The 19-year-old, who had prospects of a medal in the 200m in Melbourne, aggravated a hamstring injury while running during a domestic meeting.

“I don’t think it’s in his best interest to go to the Commonwealth Games because he’s not 100%,” said Bolt’s coach Glen Mills.

“When you have a strain it needs rest for it to get better.”

Bolt was also expected to take part in the 4x100m relay. The Jamaica Amateur Athletic Association has not announced a replacement.
