Jamaican sprint star Usain Bolt announced yesterday he was pulling out of the June 27 Golden Spike event in Ostrava in the Czech Republic, choosing instead to stay at home for training.

“I want to apologise to my fans in Ostrava, but this year I will not be coming to the Golden Spike meeting,” Bolt said in a statement offered by the organisers. Instead I will stay in Jamaica with my coach for an extra week to focus on training before coming to Europe,” said Bolt.
