Bolt’s coach Glen Mills dismissed injury reports

KINGSTON, Jamaica (Sporting Alert) — Glen Mills, the coach of world record holder Usain Bolt has dismissed reports that the lanky sprinter delayed his 2012 campaign because of health reasons.

Bolt was scheduled to launched his Olympic Games campaign at the Camperdown Classics on Saturday, but reports on Friday revealed that he would not compete.

His manager Ricky Simms said the triple Olympic champion had “some exciting projects coming up” and had to leave the island.

However, reports from Jamaica have suggested that Bolt may have been carrying an injury, after he was sighted in Germany.

But Mills said the world’s fastest man, trained prior to leaving the country and was not injured.

“Bolt is not injured,” Glen Mills. “He trained up to the day before he left the island for his business trip.”

World champion Yohan Blake, who trains with Bolt under the guidance of Mills as well, echoed that his good pal isn’t hurt.

“Bolt is quite OK,” Blake said. “He is doing well in training. He is getting back to his old self.

“He is off the island to do a general checkup. He’s OK.”
