"But the 100 and 200-meter world record holder said he might only attend the relay event."
Beijing, June 27 - Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt announced Friday that he would compete at the Commonwealth Games, to be held from July 23 to August 3 at Glasgow, Scotland.

Bolt wrote on his official website that he wouldn't attend the Jamaican Championships this weekend, but he is available for selection for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and have submitted the relevant documentation, reports Xinhua.

But the 100 and 200-meter world record holder said he might only attend the relay event.

I do not wish to take the place of anyone who qualifies this weekend in an individual event but am available for relay duty if the selectors feel I can be an asset to the Jamaican team in Glasgow, explained the 27-year-old.
