Olympic runner to make double London appearance
Published: Tuesday 7th of July 2009
One of the main attractions from last year's Olympic Games is to make two appearances in London later this month.
Usain Bolt, who won three gold medals in Beijing, has confirmed he will compete in two events at the London Grand Prix at Crystal Palace.
He had previously been down for running the 100m race, but will now also compete in the 4x100m on the weekend of July 24th/25th.
The 22-year-old said: "My performance at last weekend's Jamaican National Championships ... was very pleasing so I hope I can take that form into both events in London."
He added that it would be the "ideal tune-up" before heading to Berlin later in the year.
London is the perfect place for any sporting fanatic to visit, especially as the London Pass gives free entry to a number of top attractions.
Among them is Chelsea FC Stadium Tour, where the pass will save £15 on an adult ticket and £9 on a child's.
