Eight-time Olympic Champion, Usain Bolt has been accused of having a hand in the expulsion of Andre De Grasse in the Diamond League 100m race in Monaco on Friday.
Bolt, the greatest sprinter ever to walk the track had to be at his former best to in the last 40 meters to beat fierce competition from Isaiah Young [USA] and South Africa’s Akani Simbine at the Stade Louis II in Monaco, France to win the race.
The Jamaican [Bolt] who is retiring after next month’s London world championships clocked 9.95 seconds, just 0.03 seconds above Young’s 9.98 whiles Simbine’s time stood at 10.02 seconds.
Meanwhile, Andre De Grasse’s coach, Stuart McMillan has pointed fingers at Usain Bolt claiming that the Jamaican feared his athlete [De Grasse] was a threat to him due to his performance in Stockholm, Sweden.
The Canadian took the world by a surprise as he coasted an unbelievable 9.69 seconds in the men’s 100m race in Stockholm [Diamond League] but it was established that his time was assisted by enormous wind.
However, when asked whether he fears losing his crown to any athlete ahead of the world championships, Bolt said;
“I’m never worried about any one athlete. You always find youngsters coming up and doing great.”
“I respect that and I wish them all the best, but I’m never worried about one person because I know what I’m capable of,” he added.
