For years, Usain Bolt has hinted at retirement after the 2016 Summer Olympics or perhaps the 2017 world championships.
Now, it seems, he is reconsidering.
Speaking with a Jamaican television host, Bolt suggested he might try to stretch his competitive career.
“We’ll see, because the coach says I can go on to even the next Olympics in 2020,” Bolt said. “I’m not going to say what I’m going to do, but my coach said I should stop talking about retirement.”
A series of injuries over the last two years could influence his decision for the 2020 Tokyo Summer Games.
“Let’s just go through those two years and see what happens,” he said.
