No Usain Bolt in NYC

One of the highlights of my summer calendar, in part because I'm not really focusing on races over the next few months (it's hot!) was to see Usain Bolt in person for the first time at the June 12 Diamond League meet over at Icahn Stadium.

That was going to make up an awesome sporting double that day (not including a planned 10-15 mile run in the morning: USA-England, World Cup soccer.

That, however, has been dashed, with news that Bolt is out of the race.

Yes, I know, there are tons of other worthy runners to cheer on at the event, including 26 Olympic and world champions at last count.

But still ... "the best sport" isn't the "best" without the best sprinter in the world.
