Jamaican Olympian Bolt at long jump event for new medals!

Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt may consider tackling the long jump as part of his involvement in the new Nitro Athletics series. Bolt has been unveiled as the star attraction of the experimental competition, which will see six teams, consisting of 24 athletes each, contest a mix of track and field events in Melbourne in February, with a hurdles relay among the proposed non-traditional features.

Speaking at a news conference to announce the concept, Athletics Australia director John Steffensen, a 4x400 metre silver medal winner at the Athens Olympics in 2004, tried to tempt the Jamaican superstar to move outside of his comfort zone. "I think I'm at that point in my career where I don't have to stress too much about "if" I do long jump because my coaches don't want me to do it, but now I actually can. So it will be fun to do different things", said Usain Bolt.
