Bolt speaks out on Jamaica’s ‘spoilt’ male sprinters – “They need to work harder”

Olympic sprint great Usain Bolt, who won eight Olympic gold medals and led Jamaica through a golden era in sprinting, has spoken out regarding the struggle ahead for Jamaica’s men at the world championships, claiming his nation’s “spoiled” young sprinters lack the discipline to train and the hunger for success.

Bolt said he felt motivation levels had dipped down for his nation’s sprinters since his retirement in 2017.

Both Jamaican sprint coaches Mills and Stephen Francis, also had the same sentiments towards the nation’s male sprinters as they felt they are being complacent.

The Jamaican men has had a disappointing Commonwealth Games last year, picking up only bronzes in both the 100m individual and relay events, despite competing against relatively weaker opponents.
