Usain Bolt to retire after 2016 Rio Olympics

There is no doubt that Usain Bolt is the fastest man to ever live and he continues to dominate the competition each and every time he steps on to the track, but we are only a few years away from seeing his incredible career come to an end.

According to reports that surfaced on Wednesday morning, the sprinting great plans to retire after running in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

“I think it will be a good time to retire, on top and just been dominating for so long,” Bolt said, via ABC News. “If I want to be among the greats of (Muhammad) Ali and Pele and all these guys I have to continue dominating until I retire.”

In his most recent competition at the IAAF World Track and Field Championship, Bolt was able to take three gold medals in Moscow. The competition was held at Luzhniki Stadium, which will help him familiarize himself with Russia and set himself up for a run in the Olympics.

To finish off this season, Bolt will run at the Van Damme Memorial on Friday.
