World record holder Usain Bolt on August 8 announced that Rio Olympics 2016 would be his last Olympics.

Bolt also disclosed that a lot of people aren’t happy about his decision, though he didn’t clear whom he was talking about.

Media suspects Bolt’s reference was to his fans and sponsors who have invested a lot of money in him.

Bolt’s announcement though doesn’t come as an absolute surprise as he would be 33 years old by the time Tokyo Olympics takes place.



 

When asked about his world records, Bolt said he “really, really” wants to keep his world record in the 200 meters but added “it’s going to take sub-19 [seconds]” to do so.

At present Bolt holds the 200 meters world record at 19.19 seconds.
