Usain-BoltUsain Bolt spoke to the media for the first time since it was revealed last month he suffered a foot injury, calling it “nothing serious,” confirming he’s back in training and saying his coach believes he can lower his world records. “My experience [the foot injury] has taught me that that’s just the nature of the sport,” Bolt told the Jamaica Gleaner. “Setbacks are a part of track and field. I have come to accept that a long time ago. I had mine, and [I'm] now back in training preparing for the upcoming season.” The six-time Olympic champion’s first scheduled meet of 2014 is June 17 in Ostrava, Czech Republic. That would be a very late season opener by his standards. Usain Bolt discussed the debut of the World Relay Championships in the newspaper interview, but he did not say if he will be competing. That event is May 24-25 in Nassau, Bahamas. He also said his coach, Glen Mills, said he thinks it’s “very possible” that Bolt can break his world records. His 100m and 200m world records (9.58 and 19.19) still stand from 2009. Bolt, 27, is likely to play it safer this year since there are no Olympics nor a World Outdoor Championships. “I just want to run some fast times and finish the season injury free so I can focus on these three major championships coming up,” Bolt said, citing the 2015 World Championships, 2016 Olympics and 2017 World Championships.
