Usain Bolt has admitted there have been times where he has considered coming out of retirement.
“I talked to my track coach. And he was like, ‘No, you’re not doing it. People that retire and come back — it doesn’t always work out.’
“For me, at the end, I knew it was time because the drive wasn’t there. But every time I watch track and field I miss it. And every time I go to the track to see my coach and I watch him training I go, ‘Did I make the right decision?’…
Bolt won eight Olympics gold medals, which included three straight sprint double crowns between Beijing 2008 and Rio 2016.
He also won 14 World Championships medals, the 200m four times and three 100m gold.
Bolt is the world 100m and 200m record holder at 9.58 and 19.19.
“But every time I train with them I think, ‘Ah yeah I made the right decision. I don’t miss this,'” he was quoted by 7 News Miami.
