The Ontario-born sprinter had run the fastest wind-assisted 100m of the year, a time of 9.69 seconds, in Stockholm in June.

In the women's triple jump, Colombia's 33-year-old world and Olympic champion Caterine Ibarguen should be challenged by Venezuela's 21-year-old world indoor champion Yulimar Rojas.

The World Championships star on August 4.

Heading into Moscow 2013, his best was 9.85.

"For me it was a rough time". The quartet had then completed the relay race in 37.10 seconds to create a news world record.

In one of Rio's most memorable moments, De Grasse pushed Bolt in their 200-metre semifinal, prompting a finger wag from the Jamaican superstar, who'll retire after the world championships.

Bolt may never have been slower before a major championship, but the threats to him have rarely been less clear.

Florida: Sexually transmitted Zika infection confirmed in Pinellas County, 1st of 2017

The four years in the wilderness saw him try and fail three times to make it with an National Football League team, and having lost his lucrative sponsorship deals, he had to sell his house and live in more spartan surroundings.

"After you have suffered an injury this week, I am saddened to announce to my supporters that I will not be able to race in London", wrote De Grasse on his official Twitter account on Wednesday night.

Notably, Coleman is widely regarded as the man to fill Bolt's shoes after the latter's retirement. Bolt says this will be his final time running the 100 metres, and it will be fascinating to see whether the almost 31-year-old Jamaican can hit a walk-off shot by capturing his fourth world title in the 100 to go with his three consecutive Olympic gold medals in the event.

Usain Bolt doesn't really want to anoint the next "Usain" in track and field, but when pressed during the leadup to his last world championships he does have a name in mind - Wayde van Niekerk.

"Usain is staying with our sport, he's committed to helping us maintain his extraordinary reach, but the pressure is on us to get across that we have some of the God-given talents of any sport".

Now he is adding the 200m in London as he aims to emulate Johnson's double from the 1995 worlds and 1996 Olympics. Blake, 27, took silver at the 2012 Olympics and finished fourth last summer in Rio. Less so this season however, where he has been only the 23rd fastest in the world.
