Usain Bolt’s coach Glen Mills says the world record holder is right on schedule to run as fast as he wants at the World Championships.
Bolt, who won the sprint double in world record fashion at the last championships in Berlin, Germany, two-years-ago – has not been has sharp this season as his build up for the last two major championships.
However, Mills says the Jamaican speedster, who showed signs of his old self in the heats of the men’s 100m dash on Saturday – has trained well coming into the Daegu championships and is ready to do his thing again.
“Bolt has to put the time in to do the work and to approach it in a professional manner so that he can perform and he’s quite aware of that,” Mills said.
“He has trained very well coming into the world championships so his performances should be where he wants it to be.”
Bolt cruised to an effortless 10.10 seconds to win his heat of the men’s 100m dash and there were many, including Americans Michael Johnson and Maurice Greene who admitted that he looked like a different sprinter from what they saw earlier this season.
