Usain Bolt, the Jamaican sprint superstar is now undergoing treatment for hamstring tweak in Germany. As what Glen Mills, Bolt’s coach, described as an “aggravated hamstring injury” following his very first race of the season.
Mills said that the two-time Olympic 100m and 200m champion had tweaked the hamstring during Saturday’s Cayman Invitational meeting.

Mills told the Jamaica’s Hitz 92fm radio station on Monday,
“If you noticed in the race he was grimacing towards the end”
Mills also said that Usain’s injury is unlikely to prevent him from racing in Friday’s meeting in Ostrava, the Czech Republic.
The athlete is being treated by Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt, the Munich-based doctor who has treated Usain Bolt for years.
Bolt is targeting his third consecutive victories in the 100m, 200m and 4x 100m at August’s Olympics. After the Saturday’s race he said that he was relieved to have emerged from his season-opening race safe.
Bolt said, “It wasn’t the best, but as long as I come out injury free, that’s the key thing.”
“I didn’t feel as smooth as I wanted to, but as I always say, it’s hard to just come into your first race and do extra well.
“I am never worried. I’ve been in worse situations. It’s just race rusty. I can tell. I could feel the difference from when you are flying from when you are not.”
