Bolt wants to obliterate his world records


MULTIPLE WORLD and Olympic champion Usain Bolt has announced his intentions to smash his world records at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The Jamaican ran 9.58secs in the 100m in 2009 and 19.19secs in the 200m in the same year to lower his own world records and the 25-year-old wants to put on a show in the summer.

He told BBC Sport: "People are looking forward to me running 9.4, 19 seconds, anything that's amazing.

“They want to see my personality, me enjoying it and doing crazy stuff, but they also want to see that time.”

A triple Olympic gold medalist in Beijing for years ago, Bolt realises that he can cement his place as an icon in track and field should he deliver in London.

Bolt added: "If I dominate the Olympics, I'll be a living legend. A living legend walking around. Sounds good."
