Following a rumored interview with The Times newspaper, Jamaican sprinter has referred to the Commonwealth Games as s***, however Bolt has since denied such claims.
Katie Gibbs was in charge of conducting the interview of the Jamaican World Record holder in sprinting for the The Times. Gibbs claims that Bolt referred to the Games as s***, which caused much controversy since the purported interview. The newspaper decided to go further with their pursuit of the story by stating they have evidence on a written transcript.
Bolt, who many mobile betting firms regard as the best sprinter of all time, blatantly denied such accusations, claiming that they are not true and merely lies told by journalists. On his Twitter account, Bolt tweeted, “I’m waking up to this nonsense… journalist please don’t create lies to make headlines.”
The Commonwealth Games chief supports Bolt
Sir Chris Hoy, most decorated Olympian in cycling of all time, indicated that everyone he has talked to has “been absolutely blown away by the Games.” He also added that no athlete to his knowledge has given any negative remarks about the Games. I haven’t heard anybody who has said anything derogatory.
It’s a shame if he (Bolt) has, but I would say take the 99.9% of the athletes’ opinions and use them as your barometer, said Hoy. Gambling news reports that the Commonwealth Games Federation chief, Mike Hooper, believes Bolt is innocent in this affair and has taken his word for it, while also being pleased at how he handled the situation.
