In an exclusive interview with Reuters the athlete and businessman stated “I think a lot of these athletes, I think it’s much easier for them now. When we were coming up it was a struggle”

Usain Bolt who is an eight time Olympic champion said Jamaicas talent pool is deep but with lucrative contracts being handed out as soon as they leave high school, it seemingly lacks in providing motivation.

The champoin said “They are happy with whatever, so for me, hopefully these athletes can motivate themselves because we are not lacking talent, we have a lot of that and I have seen it throughout the years.”

“When the get to the senior level, they are not motivated and they do not work hard enough to get to the level of Usain Bolt, Yohan Blake, Shelly Fraser-Pryce or these guys, so it is all about the work and they need to motivate themselves.”

As for whats in the future for Bolt he stated “I’m just doing different things… the sports life is over now, so I’m now moving into different businesses, I have a lot of things in the pipeline, so as I say, I’m just dabbling in everything and trying to be a businessman now.”
