Usain Bolt isn’t sure whether he will try competing in the long jump because he doesn’t want to risk a serious injury that could keep him from defending his sprint titles at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
The Jamaican said he is still evaluating the possibility of taking on the long jump, but is concerned that his preparation for the event could make him more susceptible to knee injuries.
