The 29-year-old sprinter, who has won six gold medals at the Olympics over the years, scratched out of the Olympic trials following the injury.
“After feeling discomfort in my hamstring after the first round last night and then again in the semi-final tonight I was examined by the Chief Doctor of the National Championships and diagnosed with a Grade 1 tear,” Usain tweeted. “I have submitted a medical exemption to be excused from the 100m final and the remainder of the National Championships. I will seek treatment immediately and hope to show fitness at the London Anniversary Games on July 22 to earn selection for the Olympic Games in Rio.”
We’ll have to wait for the London games later this month to see if Usain qualifies!
