Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt has insisted that he is completely focused towards his goal of completing an unprecedented ‘triple treble’ in next month’s Rio Olympics.
“My aim is to win three gold medals in Rio. It would mean a lot to me personally and cement my legacy as one of the greatest sportsmen of all time,” Bolt was quoted as saying by Sport24.
Having won the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay at the last two Olympics, the world’s fastest man will vie to become the first person to win the three titles at three consecutive Games when he features at the Rio Games.
The six-time Olympic gold medallist also brushed aside concerns surrounding his fitness as he won the 200m race at the London Anniversary Games in 19.89 seconds in his return last week following a pelvic injury.
Bolt also dismissed suggestions about his impending retirement, saying his focus is fixed on attaining success at the Rio Olympics.
