Bolt dreams of joining ranks of `legends` Ali, Jordan and Pele
London: Olympic Champion Usain Bolt believes he could be among the all-time greats in any sport once he retires, while mentioning names such as Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali and Pele.
According to The Daily Star, the Jamaican sprinter has set his sights on three World Championship gold medals in Moscow and two world records, while heats for the 100m start tomorrow, with only American Justin Gatlin likely to challenge in that event.
Bolt is almost a dead-cert to win the 200m and the 4X100m relay and is already looking at cementing his place as a global sporting legend.
The champion said that he wanted to set himself higher than the rest because he wanted to be discussed among greats, and wanted to keep pushing himself.
