Usain Bolt to Take the Rest of 2010 Off

The world record holder in the 100 and 200 meter dashes will be taking the rest of the year off in an effort to heal his ailing back and achilles.

Bolt lost his most recent race in Stockholm to American Tyson Gay.

This hiatus appears to be just a precautionary measure as a Bolt spokesman said this injury causes Bolt to overcompensate and could lead to leg injuries in the future.

It appears that much like how a football player says he’d be able to play if it were the playoffs, Bolt would be able to run if it were a major meet. Sadly those will have to wait until 2011 for Bolt.
