Staying with the Olympics and there was disappointment today for hundreds of sports fans as Jamaica's biggest star, Usain Bolt failed to show at an open training session, despite assurances given, by his own team manager that he would be there.
The event at Birmingham University did give spectators the chance to see many medal hopfuls as they prepared for the Olympics, but without Bolt, it wasn't quite the afternoon many had hoped for.
Usain Bolt did not make an appearance at the Jamaican team's Track and Field open training session at the University of Birmingham today.
In a press conference earlier this afternoon, the team's management were quizzed about Bolt's no-show.
