Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt, who captured three gold medals at the Beijing 2008 Olympics, is thinking about life after the London 2012 Olympics.
“Definitely I will go to one more Olympics, and from there I will decide what I want to do,” said Bolt on Friday in an Australian Associated Press interview in Sydney while on a sponsor tour.
The current world record holder in the 100 and 200 sprints broke away from competition this year due to back problems, and will not be competing in the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, India next month.
His focus now is training for the Athletics 2011 World Championships in Daigu, Korea next August, as a steppingstone for the London Games where he seeks to break his world records.
“I’m thinking if I’m on top and I’ve done everything I want to do, maybe I’ll get out,” said Bolt.
He has recently spoken of soccer as an option in a BBC interview. “I always watch those guys and I think I could be a professional footballer. I’ll try that, he said.
