‘Lightening’ Bolt says his London Olympics victory speech is ready

London: Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt has confessed that his victory speech for London Olympics is already prepared, and believes hanging on to his 100 and 200 meter titles would add his name among athletics’ living legends.

“After London 2012 I want to go into the press conference and say before anyone asks me a question, just say ‘You are now looking at a living legend’,” Bolt said.

Bolt clocked the fastest time in the world this year when he ran 9.76 seconds in Rome last month.

It was the fourth fastest time of his career, behind his three world records set in New York, Beijing and Berlin.

He has now not been beaten over the distance for almost two years, with American rival Tyson Gay the last man to finish ahead of him.
