Peart’s announcement comes as Bolt, one of the main attractions at the Olympics, prepares to retain the 100m, 200 and 4x100m relay titles he won in Beijing four years ago in world-record times, reports CMC.
He was forced to pull out of last Friday’s Monaco Diamond League meet as a result of a right hamstring problem he experienced during the recent Jamaican Olympic trials.
“At this stage if we had anything, any problem, it would have been a crisis, we are saying there is no crisis,” IANS quoted Peart as saying during an interview on Jamaican radio.
“It’s all good. If it has been something more than that, then obviously he would not have been in the camp,” Peart explained.
Bolt is coming to the Olympics following the double blow of losing the 100m and 200m to training partner Yohan Blake at the Jamaica trials.
Bolt is already in the United Kingdom as part of a 50-strong Jamaican squad participating in the Games, which begin with an opening ceremony Friday.
