UK Athletics Vice Chair Reveals Organization Working On Bringing Bolt Back This Summer
Athletics chiefs "are in talks with Usain Bolt" about bringing him back to the London Olympic Stadium this summer, according to Matt Majendie of the London EVENING STANDARD. UK Athletics wants the Jamaican as the "star attraction" for the three day London Anniversary Games in east London to mark a year since the Games. UK Athletics Chair Ed Warner said, “Nothing is announced yet but that will be in the next few weeks. We’re trying to replicate some of the big head to heads that made the Olympics and Paralympics so special." He added, "My dream is to get Usain Bolt here, too. We’ll see where we get to in those discussions. We’re pursuing that, and we hope to be successful” (EVENING STANDARD, 2/14).
