Sprint icon Usain Bolt says his preparations for Rio’s Summer Olympics are on track, despite an ankle injury which kept him out of training recently.

The 29 year old is bidding to become the first ever athlete to win the 100 and 200 metres title at three consecutive Olympics, when he competes at the August 5th-21st global event in Brazil.

The Jamaican swept both sprint titles in World record times at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 and repeated his success four years later in London.

Long-time coach Glenn Mills said Bolt’s preparation would continue until August as the athlete looked to make up for lost time. Mills also confirmed on Wednesday that Bolt would open his season in May, as part of the build-up to Rio.
