Bolt calls it quits for 2014 season

MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica — Reports out of Europe are that triple World Record holder Usain Bolt has pulled the plug on his short 2014 season and has withdrawn from Thursday’s Diamond League meeting in Zurich.

Athletics Weekly posted on its twitter account Sunday morning that Bolt who just celebrated his 28th birthday last week had “decided to end his season following outing in Warsaw.”

The article said the organisers of the “Weltklasse meeting confirmed that following his outing at the Kamila Skolimowska Memorial in Warsaw on Saturday the Jamaican sprinter has decided to end his season and will therefore miss the Zurich event.”

After anchoring the Jamaican men’s 4x100m team to gold at the Commonwealth Games last month, Bolt won a 100m race in Rio last Sunday before setting World Record for an indoor 100m after running 9.98 seconds at the meeting in Poland on Saturday.
