World and Olympic champion Usain Bolt says he is now over the back injury that forced him to miss the closing parts of last season.
The Jamaican is now back in training with coach Glen Mills in preparation for the busy year, which also includes the IAAF World Championships in Daegu, South Korea, later this summer and he said things are back on track.
“I have been trying for a while now. I went to see the physician of the German football team Muller-Wohlfahrt in Munich and he confirmed that everything is well, I have no problems,” he said in German newspaper Welt am Sonntag.
Bolt, who had a remarkable career as a youth and junior, announced his arrival at the senior level over the 100 metres with a sparkling 9.76 seconds at the Jamaica Invitational in 2008.
He then went on to break the world record three-times, which now stands at a blistering 9.58secs.
The 24-year-old also holds the 200m record at 19.19secs, after improving Michael Johnson’s mark of 19.32secs at the Olympic Games in Beijing to 19.30secs, before running the current standard at the last World Championships in Berlin in 2009.
Bolt was beaten for the first time in two-years by Tyson Gay last season, but confirmed that he will be ready to attack his own records again this coming season.
