article imageBolt disputes claims he made disparaging Commonwealth Games slurs

By Kev Hedges     Jul 30, 2014 in Sports
Glasgow - Any reader of Wednesday morning's Times newspaper will have seen the report on the world's fastest man saying the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow "are a bit s**t."
It had been reported the Jamaican sprinter has taken a preference to the London Olympics, held in 2012, as "better." The report also quoted the 100m world champion as saying he "was not really having much fun" in Scotland, all of which came just shortly after he had met Prince Harry at the Commonwealth Games in one of the athletes' village complexes.
However, on Wednesday Bolt's manager, Ricky Simms, said, "Journalists should stop creating lies just to make headlines." Looking on Usain Bolt's Twitter account this morning and the denials continue:
I'm waking up to this nonsense.. journalist please don't create lies to make headlines
Bolt has not been scheduled to take part in any individual events during the Commonwealth Games and his manager added: "The atmosphere in and around the stadiums has been absolutely fantastic and I have absolutely no idea where these quotes have come from."
A spokesperson for the Glasgow Games responded after the Times report saying: "The Glasgow Games have so far been fantastic and everyone there, including the competing athletes, seems to be having a brilliant time. Usain Bolt must just be having an off day."
Australia currently lead in the medals table with 34 golds and a total of 101 medals. England are a close second with 33 golds and some 93 medals won so far in the games. Bolt's Jamaican team has won five golds and a total of 12 medals.
