KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) _ Olympic triple gold medalist Usain Bolt said he is ready to return to the track after his recent car crash and will run in England on Sunday.
“I still will be going to Manchester, England and I am looking forward to it because I will going there to compete,'' Bolt said on Monday. He will compete in a 150m street race.
The 22-year-old, who won gold in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay at the Beijing Games last summer, all in world record times, returned to training last week after crashing his car into a ditch along a Jamaican highway on April 29.
He had minor surgery on his left foot to remove thorns that he stepped in as he got out of the car.
“I am feeling good because I was back to training on Thursday and over the past couple of days the injuries have healed,'' Bolt said.
After Manchester, Bolt will next run in Toronto at the Festival of Excellence track and field meet on June 11 at Varsity Stadium.
“I am looking forward to the upcoming races and I am trying to get myself back on form and to compete because a lot of the other guys are training hard to beat me,'' he said.
