Prague - Usain Bolt says he will skip the Golden Spike meet in the Czech Republic city of Ostrava and a Diamond League meet in Paris because he is behind with his training following a foot injury.

In a message to the organizers on Friday, Bolt says he has fully recovered from the injury and is 100 percent fit.

But, “due to the training that I missed I am behind where I am at normally at this time of year and will not be ready to race in the Ostrava Golden Spike meet or Meeting Areva in Paris.”

The Golden Spike is scheduled for June 17, and the six-time Olympic champion was to race for the seventh time there.

The Paris meet is on July 5.
