Usain Bolt Given $762,000 To Headline 'Stellar Cast' At London's Anniversary Games
Published April 18, 2013
STAR-STUDDED CAST: In London, Owen Gibson reported government officials agreed "to a one-off exeption" allowing Bolt and other int'l athletes appearing at the event to avoid tax rules. Other overseas star names include 100m hurdles Olympic champion Sally Pearson, sprinter Carmelita Jeter and men's 400m champion Kirani James. The women's 400m Gold Medalist Sanya Richards-Ross "will renew her rivalry" with Christine Ohuruogu, who she beat into second place at the London Games. UK Athletics "has signed up all five British track and field medallists," including Farah, Ennis and Greg Rutherford, for the London Grand Prix. Fourteen of Great Britain's 16 Paralympic medalists "have also signed up," with the notable exceptions of David Weir and Hannah Cockroft (GUARDIAN, 4/17).
