Bolt, Farah Under Spotlight In London

Usain Bolt’s suspected hip pain and Mo Farah’s status as the golden boy of British athletics will come under scrutiny when both return to London’s Olympic stadium this weekend.

The world record holder has looked a long way from the unbeatable sprinter who elevated track and field above the murky waters of its dope-stained past with stunning 100m/200m doubles at the Beijing and London Olympics.

Bolt’s fitness and speed will be closely monitored a month before the world championship in Beijing when American Justin Gatlin, on fire this season, will be itching to have a crack at him.
