Usain Bolt will be a jumper !

Usain Bolt will be a jumper !

Jamaican Usain Bolt  will break all top-class long jumper but the Jamaican should wait until after the 2012 Olympics to give the event a go, according to the world record holder jumper Mike Powell.

Jamaican sprinter Bolt won gold medals in the 100, 200 and 4x100m events at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and has said before that he would consider trying the long jump and 400m relay.

Powell, who has held the long jump world record since 1991, said he recognised Bolt's probability in 2009.
Jumper Powell said"i first talked to his coach and his parents in Berlin after the 2009 world championships when we were staying in the same hotel,"
"I approached them and I said, 'he should long jump'. They said, 'you know we are talking about that'. I said I would like to be involved with that."Powell said
Powell said that his own world record of 8.95 metres could be in jeopardy if Bolt tryed jumping.

He also said "He will need the coaching to break the record,He is still very young''.
