Bolt Returning To Track In Toronto

2009 Toronto Festival of Excellence

Festival of Excellence will be the first test for the triple gold medalist after a car accident.

Jamaican sprint sensation Usain Bolt decided he will return to the track Thursday at the Toronto Festival of Excellence.  If the beauty of Toronto didn’t bring him there, it may have been the $250,000 appearance fee, but who are we to speculate?  Bolt will not be the only star showing up in Toronto; look for a strong performance from Saif Shaheen in the men’s 5000 meters, LaShawn Merritt in the men’s 400 meters, Shawn Crawford facing off against Bolt in the men’s 100 meters and decathlete Bryan Clay competing in an unconventional triathlon that will include the pole vault, 400 meter run and 110 meter hurdles.
