Global athletics star Usain Bolt will not make his 2014 season’s debut at the Camperdown Classics set for tomorrow at the National Stadium.

Members of Racers Track Club, the home of Bolt, are set to open their season at the Classics, which will celebrate its 10th season.

However, Bolt’s coach Glen Mills, who is also the president of Racers Track Club, confirmed today that the 100 and 200-metre world record holder would not compete.

Bolt normally opens his season at the Camperdown Classics, but has been missing for the past few years.

The 27-year-old Bolt has already committed to complete in Ostrava on June 17, Paris on July 5 and Malmo on August 5, but has yet to confirm whether he will represent Jamaica at the Commonwealth Games.
