Bolt keen to honour Germaine Mason with Championships win

Perhaps a Canadian record.

"That's what I keep reading and what my team keeps telling me, so I've got to prove myself again", the 30-year-old said in a warning shot to pretenders to his crown in the blue riband event of the IAAF World Championships.

Muir broke Dame Kelly Holmes' 1500m record at London Stadium a year ago, but found the pace of Kenya's Faith Kipyegon and Ethiopia's Genzebe Dibaba too hot to handle over the final 800m in a tactical Olympic final in Rio. "I'm just going out there to win this Saturday".

He has only beaten Bolt once in his long career - at a Diamond League meeting in Rome in 2013.

"We definitely didn't see anything coming", McMillan said of the injury.

U.S. economy rebounds to 2.6% growth in Q2
The dollar fell against a basket of currencies after the release of the data, while prices for U.S. government bonds rose. The economy also benefited far more modest inventory reductions, which was a big drag on first quarter growth.

His manager Paul Doyle added: "We tried to do everything we could to have him ready but he's just not going to be ready". But an ultrasound the following morning revealed a small tear. Bolt had also played against Yuvraj Singh in an exhibition match in 2014 during his maiden visit to the country and even scored 19-ball 45, including five sixes. "It set me back a little bit and I didn't train for three weeks maybe", said Bolt.

Usain Bolt looks increasingly likely to achieve the flawless send-off to his athletics career at the World Championships in London after his main rival for 100m gold, Andre de Grasse, was forced to withdraw through injury.

Bolt clearly hasn't forgotten that race.

"If that means putting out some great times in the 100, 200 and 400m, then I know I've achieved the goals I want to do as an athlete". De Grasse is eight inches shorter. But De Grasse made Bolt work for it. "But there is absolutely zero disrespect from Andre to Usain".

Van Niekerk will attempt a 200 and 400m double in London, but will not have the chance to go up against Bolt who has opted to race in the 100m and 4x100m relay only.

Pope Francis shuts off Vatican fountains due to Italy drought
Rome has received 72% less rain than normal this month, and received 74% less than normal in June. Meteorologists say the spring of 2017 was Italy's third-driest in some 60 years.

"The entire year this 100-metre race in London was my focus", De Grasse said in a statement today.

De Grasse received ultrasound treatment on Tuesday in London and flew to Munich Wednesday for further treatment, but the outcome is that he should skip the worlds. I'm always ready to go, I'm looking forward to the competition so for me that's it.

Bolt's final season has been marked by tragedy, with the Jamaican having to come to terms with the death of his friend, former Britain high jumper Germaine Mason, who died in a motor crash in April.

De Grasse has sustained a hamstring tear this week and the injury is going to cause him to give London a miss.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Active leak suggests Polycarbonate back and a 4000mAh battery
Key features included an octa-core MediaTek MTK P25 SoC, 4GB RAM and 32GB storage (expandable up to 256GB). However, for Samsung fans who are looking for alternatives, the Galaxy S8 Active is likely the best option.
