Bolt to miss Commonwealth Games

Usain Bolt

Usain Bolt is likely to miss this year's Commonwealth Games in Delhi, according to the sprinter's manager.

Ricky Simms was quoted as saying the Jamaican — the Olympic and world champion over 100 and 200 metres and the 4x100m relay — could not consider the October event a priority.

Irishman Simms said: “It's now looking unlikely Usain will be going to the Commonwealth Games. His priorities have to lie elsewhere. This year is all about the Diamond League and a continuation of his preparation for 2012.”
