Never bet against Bolt, says Bai­ley

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

For­mer 100m world record holder Dono­van Bai­ley has backed Usain Bolt to bow out in tri­umph at the world cham­pi­onships next month de­spite his slow buildup to the ath­let­ics show­piece.

Bolt logged his sea­son best of 9.95 sec­onds just over a week ago in Monaco, a time beaten by a raft of sprint­ers this year.

“Any­one that bets against Bolt at a ma­jor cham­pi­onship isn’t smart,” the Ja­maica-born Cana­dian said on Sat­ur­day.
