Olympics Day 15 - Athletics

Usain Bolt has accepted Mo Farah‘s challenge of competing in a race for charitable causes.

The British sprinter had earlier challenged Bolt to a 600m or 800m race, the proceeds of which would go to both the sprinters’ charity foundations.

Usain Bolt responded to the challenge, saying that it is something he would definitely want to participate in.

“That sounds fun. It’s going to be hard but it’s charity so it’s all about fun and enjoyment. I’m up for anything, anything’s possible,” the Jamaican Olympic winner was quoted by ESPN.”

Bolt also said he would prefer running shorter distances, adding, “It’s way too far [1500m]. Six hundred for sure I can try because I’ve done 600m in training.”

However, no formal decision regarding this race has been made yet.
