Melbourne - Jamaican
sprint star Usain Bolt has moved on quickly from the loss of a gold
medal from his Olympic trove, preferring to focus on future success.
Touching down in Australia on Wednesday before an international
athletics meet, Bolt remained philosophical about surrendering one of
his nine gold medals.
"Initially I was disappointed of course, but in life things happen," he was quoted by Fairfax media as saying.
Last week Bolt handed back a gold medal he won in the 4x100m relay at
the 2008 Beijing Games after his relay team-mate Nesta Carter tested
positive for a banned substance.
"I am not sad, I am waiting to see what Nesta is going to do, if he
is going to appeal. I have given up my medal but I am concentrating (on
the Nitro Athletics Series) now."
The 100m world record holder will lead a team of All Stars
against teams from Australia, China, Japan, England and New Zealand at
the Nitro Athletic Series in Melbourne starting on Saturday.
