Usain Bolt says he wants to break 200m record in 2014

Usain Bolt, who was named the male IAAF World Athlete of the Year last week, told reporters last Friday that he wants to spend his 2014 focusing on breaking his impressive record in the 200 meters. Bolt’s current mark is a ridiculous 19.19 seconds.

Bolt told the media that he should be able to devote more attention to the record in 2014 since there won’t be championship meets to distract him:

Definitely for this season me and my coach have decided to focus on running faster because there is no championship, so we are definitely targeting the 200 metres.


We’ll see what happens. Hopefully I can stay injury-free and everything will go well this season and I can break the world record.


That’s my focus, and then we’re going to try to push myself and hopefully get the world record and it will all work out (Bangkok Post).

Bolt won the 200 at this summer’s IAAF World Championships in Moscow with a time of 19.66 seconds.
