Earlier he stated that he missed some training in late March and early April . As he said his foot are 100% healthy now and he was backed onto full training . But he is not fit enough to attempt to qualify for the 100m and 200m at the Jamaican Championships this weekend. ”

I do not wish to take the place of anyone who qualifies this weekend as an individual event but I am available for relay duty if the selectors feel I can be an asset to the Jamaican team in Glasgow, ” Usain in a statement of his website.”

I have received lots of requests, Invitations and messages of support from my fans in Scotland who are looking forward to a great event,” he added.

Usain Bolt has never raced against the Commonwealth Games, having missed the events in Delhi four years ago and also Melbourne in 2006.
