ZURICH – The organisers of IAAF Diamond League final Weltklasse of Zurich informed that World record holder Usain Bolt decided to end his season 2014 and will not compete at the famous Letzigrund on August 28.

His coach Glen Mills decided after this three competitions to end the season so that he can start early preparations for 2015 with World Championships in Beijing.

In a statement Bolt's coach, Glen Mills, said: "It is now time to shut it down while he is healthy and injury free with a view on his preparations for the 2015 season."

Bolt will now focus on sponsorship needs and in October start training for next year.

Zurich Meet director Patrick Magyar confirmed his understanding for the decision. 

"Usain's body has delivered tremendous performances over the last years. But, it is a body and not a machine," Magyar said. "If an athlete of that level and his coach feel more rest is needed, we are certainly not going to question this and fully support this decision."
