Bolt switches focus to relay gold

| 21/08/2009

(BBC): Usain Bolt is targeting a repeat of his heroics at the 2008 Beijing Olympics by completing a sprint treble at the World Athletics Championships in Berlin. Bolt, 23, has already won the 100m and 200m in world record times and now turns his focus to the 4x100m relay. "Last year the Jamaican girls were favourites to win and messed up the baton change," said the Jamaican. "I’m just hoping we get the baton round and win so I can get three gold medals and go home smiling." Bolt has set the World Championships alight with his displays in the Olympic Stadium, which have seen him become the first man to hold the 100 and 200m World and Olympic titles at the same time.
