    I have not heard abt Tyson or Blakes schedule to date. We know Asafa doing indoors. I guess they waiting on Bolt to release his full schedule b4 they can work around that lol.

      Bolt is the only mainstream track and field athlete that releases info about his schedule way ahead of time. Tyson never does. Expect very few clashes between training partners(Bolt and Blake). The coach has said so unless the “money” is right. Both athletes ran regularly on the circuit last year and avoided each other all year long(other than Bolt’s FS in Daegu)
      And you are right, all other premier sprinters can now review Bolts schedule and decide were not to run unless they want their rear ends kicked in ?

        Of course Bolt's schedule is waited upon. The media/promoter hype engine needs to make the most beneficial match ups for the European audience to see.

          Since Tyson and Blake are Adidas athletes they should clash over the 200m in NYC on June 9. I am looking forward to this. I hope they don't run different disciplines. We need more excitement b4 the Olympics just like in 08 with Bolt and Tyson in New York.

              Bolt has not confirmed he will run the 4 x 400m in London. He is a bit concerned about a 4 x 400m final the day before his favored "4 x 100m" relay.

              We will see.

                It would be foolish of Bolt to run that relay.

                  He would have much preferred the schedule to be the other way around. Too late for the schedule to be changed even for Bolt.

                      Re: Usain Bolt's 2012 Track Schedule

                      I have two questions: the first, which to me is an obvious question which people are seemingly too defensive of Bolt to ask, is did he really go to this German doctor just for routine work on his chronic back problems? If so, why the heck would he announce shortly beforehand that he was going to run a meet on the same day? This does not add up. There had to have been a tweak in training, serious enough to warrant a trip to a specialist on another continent. Why the Racers camp is denying this, and why people are so willing to go along with whatever they say (by 'people' I mean Racers-leaning Jamaicans), I do not know.

                      My second question is is Bolt still slated to run at the next 2 meets (I believe they are this Saturday and next)?

                        Regarding your first question, Bolt and his management team are not required to give any of us updates as to what he does off the track. If he decides to “skip” a lowkey meet to go for a doctor checkup, I believe it is his business and no need for us to question it. He has been seeing his German specialist doctor for years. Go and research this.

                        Regarding your next question, what meet is Bolt scheduled for this Saturday? I don’t know of any. There is the Gibson Relays next Saturday and we will just have to wait to see if he participates.

                          When any entertainer decides to go the media-star route, whether or not they're "required" to give updates they can expect to have it requested/demanded nonstop. It goes with the territory. Caveat emptor and all that.

                            Who cares. We all know that Bolt is only gonna run superfast @ ja trials and @ the olympics. That's all that matters. Everything else including the diamond league are side notes.

                              Bolt better hope everybody cares.

                              The minute people quit caring about his every waking moment (and his sleeping ones too, come to think of it!), his value to sponsors drops commensurately.
