Yohan Blake set to defend 100m title
Jamaican sprinter Yohan Blake could be fit for August’s World Championships
Usain Bolt’s training partner Yohan Blake can compete in the upcoming World Championships in Moscow as the Jamaican’s manager denied rumours Blake was undergoing surgery.
The 23-year-old sprinter has been troubled by serious hamstring problems but it appears that the sprinter has shrugged off the injury.
"There is absolutely no discussions or plans for any surgery and I don't know where that information is coming from," his manager Cubie Seegobin told Reuters.
"No decision has been made about Yohan missing the World Championships.
"The coach has not yet decided on pulling him from the World Championships," he later added.
According to various media outlets, ‘The Beast‘ would not return to full fitness before the event and wouldn’t defend his 100m title he won three years ago in Daegu.
Despite not competing in the Jamaican trials, Blake was given a wild card entry as he is the defending champion.
However, Blake did not qualify for the 200m race - where he was considered to be Bolt’s biggest rival.
