Usain Bolt May Lose Olympic Gold Medal Over Doping

Usain Bolt has broken so many records, and has begun thinking of life outside the track.

Bolt, who has 6 Olympic gold medals, has announced that he will retire after the 2017 World Championship in London.

“That was the initial plan (to sign off after Rio),” he told the Daily Mail on Saturday.

“But my sponsor has asked me to go on for another year, to 2017 and London. But I’ll be doing one event, the 100.

“I’ve already discussed it with my coach. I can concentrate on that, and on retiring on a winning note.”

Bolt holds the world records for the 100 metres, 9.58 seconds, the 200 meters, 19.19 seconds, and the 4×100 meters relay, 36.84 seconds.
