Amsterdam: The prospect of Jamaican sprint legend Usain Bolt missing the Rio Olympics through injury will rightly give organisers and fans palpitations.
Usain Bolt and Sebastian Coe
But track and field's chief , Sebastian Coe, insisted yesterday that the Games were not based around one athlete.
Bolt is facing a race against time to be fit for Rio Games just four weeks away. "He's important but he's not the only athlete that's going to be in Rio," IAAF president Coe said.
"We have some extraordinary world-class athletes. But I accept the man is a genius. He's probably the most recognisable sportsman or woman on the planet. It's a high-class problem. Many sports would really like to be discussing a Usain Bolt in their ranks: they don't and they can't."
