PARIS: Usain Bolt has withdrawn from the Diamond League meet in Monaco on July 20, which was to have been his last outing before the London Olympics, after picking up a ‘slight problem’ at the Jamaican trials. The defending 100 and 200m Olympic champion, pulled up at the end of the 200m at last week’s Jamaican Olympic trials, briefly receiving medical treatment on the track. “Arising from Usain’s participation at the National Trials this past weekend where he had a slight problem, after careful assessment I have had to withdraw him from the Diamond League Meeting in Monaco to give him sufficient time for treatment and time to train and prepare for the Olympic Games in London,” said Bolt’s coach Glen Mills.
