Usain Bolt relaxes ahead of Friday's Zürich Golden League

Usain BoltZURICH — Eight competitions, three titles, two world records, and a longish after-event party – an impressive world championship haul for Usain Bolt.

Yesterday, the sprint superstar left Berlin and arrived in Zurich for his next 100m challenge of next Friday. Together with his coach Glenn Mills, he travelled business class aboard Swiss flight LX971, so that he could stretch his tired legs during the journey.

However, as the car aficionado was much more interested in the local means of transportation in Zurich, he asked Bettina Borner, the responsible for inviting the athletes, what kind of car would take him to the Hotel Mövenpick Airport in Glattbrugg. After enjoying the drive in a luxurious Mercedes, he was in need of a quick bite:

"I am starving," Bolt explained heading directly to the restaurant after check-in.

During the next two days, the 23-year-old Jamaican will now relax in order to be ready for Weltklasse Zürich on Friday night. The star’s spacious suite on one of the uppermost floors boasts a breathtaking view. Bolt plans on sleeping, eating and some light training tomorrow and on Wednesday, but no promotional appearances.

On Thursday, however, he will be at RailCity, Zurich’s main station (between 11.30 a.m. and 1.30 p.m.), and watch his fans who will try to race against his ‘double’ (made of paperboard) at world record speed.

He will sign autographs, and maybe even demonstrate his talents as a DJ – a fun prelude to the real Bolt show on Friday night.
