Usain Bolt is aiming to retain both sprint titles in Rio:

Would be an amazing achievement if he does it but can't help thinking he is bonkers.

I htought this was going to be about the Triple Jump!

Four years is a very long time, i'll be interested in the summer of 2015 but until then its just the usual talk. Before the Rio games, we have the World Championships, three full Diamond League seasons and any sort of injury could crop up.

Blake looks incredible and I think he could really push a 30 year old Bolt in 2016... every time Blake runs against Bolt, it looks like Blake is learning and getting quicker.
