Usain Bolt uninjured, resting at home following car accident

Multiple world record holding Jamaican sprinter, Usain Bolt is resting comfortably at his Kingston home following a car accident that took place early Sunday morning in the island’s capital.

The Olympic gold medal winning athlete was involved in a minor car accident in Half-Way-Tree where his BMW crashed into a guard rail shortly after 5 a.m. as he was making his way from a popular party in Kingston. However, Bolt escaped unharmed and according to his publicist, Carole Beckford, the 100m and 200m record holder is resting well at home.

“There were no injuries at all. He is fine and resting at home,” Beckford told the Associated Press.

Reportedly, the police are still investigating the crash.

Meanwhile, former world record holding Jamaican sprinter, Asafa Powell was travelling in another car at the time of the crash and later tweeted, “My friend and countryman [Bolt] is ok after a fender bender.” Additionally, Powell intimated that he was not injured nor was he inside Bolt car as the crash occurred.

Bolt and Powell had only just returned to the island earlier this week after finishing first and second respectively at the 100m during a Diamond League meet in Oslo, Norway. Bolt clocked in at 9.79 seconds while Powell registered a time of 9.85 seconds.

This isn’t the first time that Bolt has been involved in a car crash. In 2009, the internationally acclaimed track superstar crashed his BMW into a ditch along a highway. Following that accident, Bolt underwent minor surgery on his left foot after stepping on thorns while escaping from the wreckage.

They said the Golden Spike was likely to be this year’s first start in Europe for Bolt, who is set to defend his Olympic 100-metre and 200-metre gold in August in London.

The news came in the wake of Bolt’s withdrawal from the Camperdown Classic event in Kingston, Jamaica last Saturday that sparked concerns about his health which were later denied by Bolt’s coach.

The Golden Spike organisers earlier confirmed Cuba’s world record holder Dayron Robles for the 110-metre hurdles race at Ostrava.

Jamaica’s Veronica Campbell-Brown is expected on the 200-metre track, and US runner LaShawn Merritt will run 400 metres at the event, the organisers said.
