Bolt decided to retire - Reuters
Cairo – 15 August 2017: Usain Bolt will never change his mind regarding retiring and return to sprinting. Bolt participated in his last event in the IAAF World Championship in Athletics in London.
“No, I've seen too many people come back, make things worse and shame themselves. I won't be one of those people who come back," he said.
In his last participation, Bolt wasn’t as brilliant as he was during his prime, as he lost the 100m gold medal and ended the 4x100m relay with an injury.
Bolt, 30, believes he delivered his message well. "I've proved with hardwork anything is possible. I personally think this is a good message to the kids. 'Push on, be strong, be as good as you can be.’ That's a good legacy to leave," he said.
Asked about his plans for the future, he answered, “the first thing I'm going to do is have some fun. Have a party and have a drink. I need to chill."
Bolt won eight Olympic gold medals in 2008, 2012 and 2016.
