Usain Bolt says he can run faster
Madrid: Fresh from setting a pair of world records, Usain Bolt is ready to go faster.
The Jamaican sprinter, who took part in a ceremonial kickoff celebrating the start of the Spanish league at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium this weekend, said yesterday he can improve on his record times of 9.58 seconds in the 100 meters and 19.19 in the 200.
"I think I can go faster, but I leave that up to my coach," Bolt said. "We analyze each race. We try to go through the season without risking getting injured. We see what we can do to go further and achieve great things in sport."
Bolt was in the Spanish capital on Saturday to attend Real Madrid`s opening match of the season. He said he has become a fan of the team since striker Ruud van Nistelrooy moved there three years ago.
"Manchester United was my favorite team when I started to watch football because he was there," said Bolt, calling the Dutchman his favorite player. "I became a Real Madrid fan because I follow Ruud van Nistelrooy wherever he goes."
Bolt said he felt nervous in front of 80,000 fans just before the season`s opening match against Deportivo La Coruna, which Madrid won 3-2. He said the experience was "priceless."
