OLYMPIC Games double sprint gold medallist Usain Bolt and his Olympics silver medal winning training partner Yohan Blake returned to training at the University of the West Indies on Monday.

The Racers Track Club duo normally return to training in the beginning earlier in October but according to their head coach Glen Mills, “Things and times have changed.”

The two were part of a group of Olympic and Paralympic athletes who were earlier this month feted by the government and were presented with monetary awards for their feat in London.

Also in the Racers camp are the 200m bronze medallist Warren Weir, 4x100m gold medallist Kemar Bailey-Cole and women’s 4x400m bronze medalllist Rosemarie Whyte.

All except Bolt were on hand to see Mills receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Camperdown High School at its Hall of Fame induction last Saturday night.
