I am not the best yet, says Bolt

By Gary Smith, World-Track

OSTRAVA — Triple Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt says it is too early to consider himself the best athlete ever, but admits that he is working hard towards the feat.

"I am not (the best ever) I am only one of them. Therefore I am still working on myself or more the "project BOLT" to get there to become the best athlete and legend ever," he said during the news conference for Wednesday’s Golden spike meeting in Ostrava.

Looking for sub-10 seconds

In his first 100m on international soil, Bolt clocked 10.00seconds to destroy a solid field at the Toronto Festival last Thursday.

The race was run in cold unfriendly-like weather for sprinters, but after going through a workout and relaxing for a bit on his arrival here, the Jamaican superstar is looking forward to breaking 10-seconds this time around.

"A time around 9.8 is pretty good time for me right now," he said. "I feel good so far, even the weather is not bad at all. So, everything is good."

Just Following the rules

Meanwhile, when Bolt takes the warm area to prepare for his race Wednesday, he, unlike many of the many top athletes will not be wearing the regular headphones, which tends to motivate the sprinters.

Asked if he is disappointed that his coach barred such activity, the world record holder said no, it is a rule in the team.

"That’s not a problem for me and that is actually one of the rules on our team, to keep us focus and concentrated."
