Usain Bolt Has A Bad Back, No Word On If The Doctor Said He Needs A Backiotomy

God, if you listenin’…HELLLLLP!!!

Alright, moving on from far-too-easy Sir-Smoke-Alot reference, Usain Bolt, after surprisingly losing to Tyson Gay in Stockholm last week in a 100m race, has decided that enough is enough trying to race while dealing with nagging injuries and will instead hang up his running shoes and take the rest of the season off to rest his ailing lower back after consulting with a Munich doctor on Monday. Via Reuters:

“I am very disappointed to miss two of the top meetings on the circuit — Zurich and Brussels — but trust that it is better for me not to take any risks this year,” said Bolt.

“2011 and 2012 are very important championship years and I hope to be back fully fit and healthy,” he added in reference to next year’s world championships in Daegu and the London Olympics.

The competitor that he is, it will come as no surprise to anyone if he comes back better and faster than ever after a few months rest. But for those of you ladies out there who think that Bolt is going to slack off and lose his focus, I have only this to tell you:

He’s impotent, man! Get away from him, bitch!

Okay, he’s not – at least, that has never been made know publicly, I just couldn’t help making one last Half Baked reference. Sue me.
