- Jamaican sprint star Usain Bolt has withdrawn from the Paris Diamond League meet this Saturday. Bolt is suffering from a leg injury picked up in last week's Jamaican championships. He has also pulled out of the Lausanne meet on July 9. "I'm disappointed not to be able to compete in Paris and Lausanne. I love running at these meetings but at the moment I am unable to compete at 100 percent," Bolt said. "I look forward to getting back into full training as soon as possible."
