Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORT - An­dre Lowe Spe­cial Projects Ed­i­tor –Sports

THE WORLD’S fastest man, Usain Bolt, has set the date. His last race in Ja­maica will take place next June at the Rac­ers Grand Prix in what will be his fi­nal strides to­wards re­tire­ment. Bolt’s all-conquering ca­reer will come to an end af­ter next year’s World Cham­pi­onships in Lon­don, and with the nine-time Olympic cham­pion and triple world record holder al­ready se­cur­ing his spot by virtue of his de­fend­ing cham­pion wild card, there are no plans or re­quire­ment to com­pete at the 2017 Na­tional Se­nior Cham­pi­onships.
