Athletics: Never bet against Bolt, says Bailey

Former one hundred metres world file holder Donovan Bailey has backed Usain Bolt to bow out in triumph at the world championships next month regardless of his gradual buildup to the athletics showpiece.
Bolt logged his season best possible of 9.95 seconds just over a week ago in Monaco, a time crushed by using a raft of sprinters this 12 months.
however the 30-year-outdated Jamaican is still raging favorite to win his fourth 100m world title, and with good motive, in line with former world and Olympic champion Bailey.
“someone that bets in opposition to Bolt at an enormous championship isn’t sensible,” the Jamaica-born Canadian told Reuters on Saturday.
“those athletes have to have a mistake-free race to make (the 100m remaining) fascinating,” he said of Bolt’s rivals.
Bolt is currently ranked joint seventh with arch rival Justin Gatlin on the 12 months’s prime timesheet which is headed with the aid of world leader and American NCAA champion Christian Coleman. Coleman ran 9.eighty two seconds in Eugene, Oregon closing month.
