What time will Usain Bolt set at Rio Olympics 2016? Records set to tumble: Usain Bolt set his sights on breaking his 200 metres world record at the Rio Olympics after declaring himself fit and ready to race following a visit to his controversial German doctor.
“This is where history is going to be made,” said Usain Bolt, a six-time Olympic champion and the current world record holder in both the 100m and 200m events.
“My hamstrings are good, I have no issues right now. The doctor did an extremely good job. I know I’m in good shape.”
Bolt’s doctor is the renowned Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt, the 73-year-old Germany national team doctor known as ‘Healing Hans’. He has treated a host of the world’s leading sports stars, but whose unorthodox methods – including his use of homeopathy and calves’ blood injections – divide opinion.
Bolt said: ” I’ve been going there for years. I have a really bad back problem and every year it gets worse.
“He’s the only person I’ve been to over the years that has figured out a way to make sure my back is okay and I can compete and I can stay on track.
“I’m tested all the time, years upon years. I got tested this morning. The IAAF (athletics’ world governing body) test me all the time, WADA (the World Anti-Doping Agency) test me, everybody tests me.
“I have all the trust in my doctor and I support him 100 per cent.”
