Usain Bolt will retire after 2016 Olympics
Usain Bolt, one of most accomplished athletes in sprinting history, plans to retire following the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games, according to an AP report.
Bolt has dominated the sport for the better part of a decade, but the Jamaican sprinter is hoping to go out on top in Rio with plans to take gold and set a world record in the 200 meters.
''I think it will be a good time to retire, on top and just been dominating for so long," Bolt said.
He hopes to be remembered as one of the worlds greatest athletes, stating "If I want to be among the greats of (Muhammad) Ali and Pele and all these guys, I have to continue dominating until I retire.''
