Bolt confirms tilt at Rio three-peat

6:43 pm on 8 October 2012

The Jamaican sprint star Usain Bolt says he will defend his three gold medals from the London and Beijing Olympics at the 2016 Rio Games, and he won't be trying the long jump.

Bolt insists his only focus in four years will be the 100, 200 and 4x100 relay.

The 26-year-old says he won't be playing cricket in Australia's Big Bash this summer but hasn't ruled it out next year.

Bolt was on a whirlwind media trip to Auckland.
