Usain Bolt has two main goals before he retires from Track & Field. On Friday, June 12, he told the Adidas Grand Prix Press Conference, "The hardest one is trying to get under 19 seconds.”

Continuing, he said, “The other is to sweep the Olympics sprints for a third time in Rio next year.” 

Bolt won back-to-back Olympic Games sprint double titles in Beijng 2008 and London 2012. He also said he will retire after the World Championships in 2017.

"Those are my two big goals. That's what keeps me going, keeps me motivated. Next season is going to be a big season, but I have to take it one step at a time,” revealed the world record holder of the 100m (9.58) and 200m (19.19).

He added that if he is to break 19 seconds in the 200m, he would “have to get back in the mode of running a lot of 200 metres and getting back to the perfection that I'm used to, running the curve.”
