    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.
    Agreed! One of the reasons why Chad Ochocinco-Johnson and Shaq are still marketable even though it seems like they are attention-starved a-holes is that they have used social networking to perfection; making and keeping themselves relevant in their ever-growing fan base. Bolt may be a global star but track is the driver; he should fire his PR girl because she doesn't have a clue. They should have been out in front of this with a tweet saying, "sorry to disappoint, I have a sponsor obligation I must tend to" and that would have been the end. Speculation alone can damage/scare away sponsors and potential sponsors.

        I thought I read on trackalerts that he was going to start with a 400, then run the 4x1 and 4x4 at Gibson then run the open 400 at another meet.

Go and research this.
        The timing of his announcements suggests that there was a sudden injury in training. Why else would he announce he was going to run at a meet, then a few days later pull out to go get treatment? If this was a routine visit, he would have anticipated it in advance and not scheduled himself in the meet. Now, if you simply don't care about this, then fine. But you are one of the the biggest Usain Bolt/Racers TC fans on this site; it isn't that you don't care about this announcement, it is that you are unwilling to look at it critically because you fear that it may lead to an unencouraging conclusion.

        What I think happened was this; he aggravated his chronic back issues in training, and rushed off to Germany. His team decided to keep it under wraps because they want to downplay his ongoing issues for marketing reasons. Is this going to be a problem? Maybe, maybe not. 2010 was bad, 2011 was good but not up to Bolt's lofty standards. We will see if his body will reach 2009 heights again. This time, Mr. Blake will be there to require that he does.

              c and n take your homeboi blinders off and look at the implications. It is not likely big but it was unlikely to have been a scheduled thing and it was something that apparently was decided to have done before he races. None of your long-winded comments really deals with those rather obvious factors, even if this is a secondary thing early in the season.

                Hahaha... you guys really don't belong on this site. Try sprintzone instead. I think you will will fit in better there. Here, the discussion involves more logical reasoning, where as there it is more about your guys' style; i.e. cliches, nationalism, club tribalism, and and ad hominem attacks.

                I am not asking you to admit when you are wrong. I know you will never do that. i just ask that you propagate your ideas in their appropriate forum.

                    Keep driving your self crazy about Bolt. One thing will be for certain, Bolt will be triple Olympic champion again come August.

                      Tell dem notorious. The obsession needs to stop but it won't. I remember last yr that Bolt won't be in shape for world champs, he is too rusty and he wont get down to 19.4 shape and so on and so on...... Even if he doesnt run until May it doesn't matter. Glen Mills will get him in shape for trials and the Olympics. Only those count.

                        So, will the lead-up-to-the Olympics 'overwhelming' champ be the 2012 JW?

                        You two still do not understand what people are saying and what they are not saying and you cannot respond appropriately (i.e., have an actual discussion) on the topic. We already know that you think that Bolt will win everything so tell us something new. Hearing exactly the same thing again and again is boring.

                          If you think its boring hearing about Bolt over and over again, just stay out of any topic that involves him. Its that simple.

                          GH does not think Bolt is boring and that is why he placed him on the cover of this months T & F News magazine.

                            It is not boring to hear about Bolt, it is boring to hear exactly the same thing over and over again (it has no informational content after the 20th time and little long before that).

                              Bolt is scheduled to take part in a corporate 5k event tomorrow, the Sigma corporate run my understanding is that he will actually walk the distance but that sound but that should at least stop the noise on here about him being injuried.

                                And u don't understand wat i am saying either. To speculate is not discussing because speculation is just that speculation and not facts. Period. I like to let time run a little b4 i discuss because i don't like assuming because u know the saying. If i see he doesn't run until May then we can have a legit discussion abt him being injured. Blake, his agent and coach say he is not injured. So i guess all of them is lying then.
