[Sharingbuttons]United States quarter mile legend Michael Johnson has revealed that he advised recently retired sprint star Usain Bolt to end his career after the high of the 2016 Rio Olympics.
“I spoke to Usain and advised him to stop after Rio,” Johnson said while speaking on Indian television show ‘Royal Stag Barrel Select Perfect Strokes’. He went on to imply that Bolt’s ability to hit peak stride likely came down to a matter of motivation.
“I think after winning double gold medals (100m and 200m) in three editions of Olympics and also winning World Championship, I don’t think you have a lot of motivation left. It is very difficult to win double gold medal in successive editions of Olympics and that too thrice.”
