Nitro Athletics Launch In Melbourne

The fastest man in the world Usain Bolt will compete and captain the Bolt All-Stars at Coles Nitro Athletics Melbourne.

The Nine-time Olympic gold medallist and 100m and 200m world record holder believes Nitro Athletics is the concept that will take athletics into the future.

“This will be track and field as it’s never been seen before and that’s why I’m involved, not only as a competitor, but also as a team captain,” Bolt said.

Bolt, who has never raced in Australia, is looking forward to building his team and returning in February for the three-meet Nitro Athletics Melbourne series.

“Nitro Athletics is what track and field needs – a fresh way to present the sport and I can’t wait to be back in Melbourne to share Nitro Athletics with the fans in February,” Bolt said.
