Jamaican sprint superstar Usain Bolt has vowed to build on his "living legend" with another defence of his Olympic titles at Rio 2016.

After toying with switching disciplines, the world's fastest man said he has decided to focus solely on winning the 100m and 200m golds in Brazil.

"Rio is about going and defending my titles," Bolt said during a trip to New Zealand. "I don't want to try any different events at Rio, because at Rio I will just defend my titles to show the world that there is a possibility that I can do it again. To do the three-peat, that is the focus."
