Usain Bolt flirting with more events, to extend his athletic capabilities


TOKYO (REUTERS) - World's fastest man Usain Bolt is still toying with the notion of adding the 400 metres or long jump to his repertoire after retaining his 100 and 200 Olympic titles.

The 26-year-old, who also helped defend Jamaica's 4x100 relay crown in London, said on Wednesday he could opt to branch out at the 2016 Olympic in Rio de Janeiro.

"It's just to find something else now to strive towards,"Bolt told reporters at a sponsor's event in Tokyo. "There's a few things I've thought about.

"I could try another event, maybe the long jump or the 400 m," added Bolt, who came onto stage dancing to loud reggae music.
