PARIS: Usain Bolt is the headline act for the World Athletics Championships in Daegu, but the Jamaican star has warned that more world records are not likely to be on the cards. Bolt has dominated the 100m and 200m since storming to double gold in world-record times at the Beijing Olympics in 2008. But an injury lay-off has put paid to any thoughts of going even faster at the world championships. “I’m Olympic and world champion,” he said. “My goal is to defend my titles.  But I’m never going to get to 9.58 seconds.”
