Jamaica's Usain Bolt, holder of the world record and the Olympic champion in the 100- and 200-meter sprints, said he planned to return to the track in August and compete in four events.
Bolt said in a statement posted on his Web site that he would compete in the 4x100 relay for Jamaica at the Commonwealth Games Aug. 1-2 in Glasgow.
The 27-year-old Bolt plans to compete on Aug. 17 in the "Mano a Mano 100 m" on Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana beach and will run the 100 meters again on Aug. 23 at the Kamila Skolimowska Memorial in Warsaw.
Bolt is slated to compete in the 100 meters on Aug. 28 at the Weltklasse meet in Zurich.
The Jamaican sprinter competed last year in the "Mano a Mano" in Rio de Janeiro, where organizers built a track just for the event.
Bolt, known as "the world's fastest man," was treated in March in Munich for swelling in one of his feet, his agent, Ricky Simms, said.
The Jamaican sprinter usually does not compete in the winter indoor season, but the injury delayed his taking to the outdoor tracks this year.
Bolt was expected to compete on June 17 at the meet in Ostrava, Czech Republic, but he had to pull out. EFE
