Jamaican athlete Usain Bolt confirmed in an interview with Agency France-Press that “if I had retired, I could have won gold in the 100m at the last Olympics in Tokyo.”

Four years after retiring from track and field athletics, the 35-year-old Bolt answered “yes” to the question of whether he would win the 100m at the Tokyo Olympics.

Speaking at the office of one of his Pepsi sponsors in Dubai, Bolt added: “I missed it and said, ‘I want to be there’ because I lived in those times and it was hard for me to watch this race.”

Unknown racer Italian Lamond Marcel Jacobs surprised everyone by winning the final of the 100-meter race in 9 seconds and 80 percent of the time.

“When I retired (in 2017), my coach said something to me: ‘Your opponents are not fast, you’re going slow’. I never thought so,” the eight-time Olympic champion added.

“It’s a fact: a lot of sprinters don’t really improve their time.

Bolt, who has won 11 world titles in his career, considered taking part in the Tokyo Olympics, which was postponed for a year to 2021 due to the “Covit-19” virus, but soon abandoned the project, saying, “I have succeeded in achieving everything I have.” In this game, the question is whether I was motivated. “

Bolt expressed his dissatisfaction with the results of his teammates in the men’s sprint at the Olympics in Japan, as none of them lost in the final of the 100-meter dash, and the Jamaican team finished fifth in the 100-meter dash four times. .

For the simple reason that he does not believe he can break or close his world records in the 100m (9.58 seconds) and 200, he is also highly critical of his successors who are number one in world sprints. M (19.19 V).

“I don’t think I’ve seen any racer of the current generation who can break these records,” he said.

As Bolt sought to pursue his sporting career in the world of football, he sought the IAAF’s help to promote the sport that made him famous and rich around the world, and he submitted a request to British IAAF President Sebastian Cowie.

However he acknowledged that their numbers were not enough to defeat President Conte’s government.

If his career was defined by his time, records, and nicknames, his relaxed and expressive movement after every lightning success would have impressed Selby listeners who met him.

Sometimes it turns out a little bit, I would not say annoying, but it’s a lot, but I’m responsible, ”he commented.
