Bolt to resume training next week


KINGSTON, May 6 – Usain Bolt had stitches removed from his left foot on Tuesday after his auto crash last week and the Beijing Olympic hero and sprint world record-holder is set to resume training next week.USAIN_BOLTNorman Peart, manager for the Jamaican sprint star, said he expects to keep Bolt out the remainder of the week to be certain he is rested and fully healed before resuming workouts.

"He is healing well," Peart said. "He could be back in training in a couple of days. I think he will allow the week to run off though and start afresh next week."

Bolt had minor surgery to remove thorns that pierced his foot when he exited from the wreckage of his BMW M3 after it skidded off the highway and overturned in a ditch last Wednesday.

Bolt missed Saturday’s Jamaica International Invitational track meet but could be ready for a planned street race in Manchester, England on May 17.
