Usain Bolt suffers injury scare ahead of Rio Olympics



Six-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt has suffered an injury scare ahead of Rio after tearing a hamstring at Jamaica’s Olympic trials.

Bolt, sustained the grade-one tear during the first round of the 100m and withdrew after winning his semi-final.
He is still expected to defend his 100 and 200m titles as Jamaica’s selection policy allows medical exemptions.
Bolt “will seek treatment immediately” and is aiming to return for the London Anniversary Games on July 22.
