London, July 24(ANI): Olympic champion Usain Bolt believes he won't be remembered or considered a track legend until he repeats his record-shattering Beijing Olympics performance at the London Games.
At Beijing in 2008, the Jamaican ace won gold medals in 100m, 200m and in the 4 x 100m relay, all in world-record times.
But Bolt, who has been under pressure from fellow Jamaican Yohan Blake in an injury-plagued 2012 build-up, insists he needs to rule at London.
"Winning an Olympics once is not the mark of a great athlete. Anyone can win one. You have to do it again if you are to stand out from the crowd," The Sun quoted Bolt, as saying.
Bolt followed his Beijing triumph by breaking the 100m and 200m records again at the World Championships in Berlin in 2009.
But Blake won the 100m at the last World Championships in Korea after Bolt was disqualified, and then beat the great man over 100m and 200m at the Jamaican trials last month.
There have been worries about Bolt's fitness in the wake of those defeats with his back and hamstring troubles flaring up again, but his agent had recently claimed that Bolt was good to go. (ANI)
