Arsenal Jamaica (West Indies), May 16 (ANI): The world’s fastest man, Jamaican Usain Bolt, has told Sky News that he can beat his own world 100m record.The 22-year-old Jamaican - who has been recovering after a car crash, said: “I think I can go 9.50-something. My coach said that in Beijing I probably would have gone 9.54.”

“My coach has never been wrong about a time yet so I think, with me getting back on form, anything is possible.”I smiled when I heard he had a project (Project Bolt) named after me. I think everyone wants to be the best. It’s not a problem, doesn’t matter who,” Bolt added.He said the ultimate aim this year is the track and field world championships in Berlin in August.

Bolt has been training with his footballing heroes at Manchester United as the club prepares for a potentially title-winning Premier League game against Arsenal.

He was hoping to pass on some sprinting tips to the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney and said he may be able to learn something from Sir Alex Ferguson about preparation for big races. (ANI)
