AUSTRALIA IS WOOING SUPERSTAR USAIN BOLT FOR THE 2018 COMMONWEALTH GAMES!

Track  and  Field  superstar Usain  Bolt  looks  set  to  be  heading  to  the  Commonwealth  Games  next  year  in  Australia.

Reports  are  that  negotiations started  with the  eight  time  Olympic  champion  to  be  in  attendance  at  the  event  following  his  retirement  from  the  track  at  the  end  of  the  IAAF World  Championships  recently  in  London.  His  presence  in the  Gold  Coast  during  the April 4  to  15   event  would  be  a  coup  for  the  organizers.

The track and field legends presence will possibly be in an ambassadorial role.

The games organizers say Bolt draws a massive audience wherever he goes and will ensure the eyes of the world are on the coast during the games next year.

Organizing Committee Chairman Peter Beattie could not confirm Bolt’s visit but said organizers would be delighted if he was present.

Beattie revealed that CEO Mark Peters has been involved in discussions over a period of time but announcements have to be made and that will be done at the appropriate time.

Peters  in  his  response  says  discussions are continuing with Bolts management around an involvement with the Games.
