Six-time Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt has insisted that he is ‘not worried’ to face in-form American sprinter Justin Gatlin at next month’s World Championships in Beijing.

The Jamaican, who holds the world record in both 100 metres and 200 metres, said that he was not planning to lose in Beijing despite his struggles with form this year.

Bolt, who will compete in the 100m at the Anniversary Games in London on Friday, insisted that he was not worried to face fellow sprinter Gatlin despite knowing the fact that the latter had been on a winning streak this season.

Bolt said that he was looking forward to going to Beijing, adding that there would no worries as long as he was in great shape, the Guardian reported.

Although Gatlin has clocked 2015’s fastest 100m and 200m this season, he is yet to race against Bolt.
