Lightning Bolt to strike in Manchester

KINGSTON, May 12 – Jamaica's Usain Bolt, the world's fastest man, will run in a 150-metre street race Sunday at Manchester, Bolt manager Norman Peart confirmed on Monday.USAIN_BOLTOnly four days after stitches were removed from his left foot following injuries from a car crash, Bolt was declared fit and ready to race in England.

"He is OK. He is training pain-free and is on target to run in Manchester next Sunday," Peart said. "He will leave either Wednesday or Thursday."

Bolt, who won Beijing Olympic 100 and 200 gold in world record times last August, crashed his car in a ditch along a rain-slick road on April 29 and returned to training late last week.

His status for Manchester was uncertain until Bolt’s training sessions and condition were evaluated, although Bolt did not want to miss out on a chance to see Manchester United star forward Ronaldo.

"He is really looking forward to going to Manchester and to meet with Ronaldo. He can’t wait," Peart said.
