Usain Bolt traveled out to Europe ahead of his next race in the Czech Republic but reportedly stopped in Germany to have treatment on his hamstring.

Bolt opened the season with a 10.05-second victory for 100 meters at the Cayman Invitational on Saturday. Afterwards, he told reporters that he was happy to come out of the race without any major injury. His coach told a local radio station that the world's fastest man may have tweaked his hamstring and will be treated in Munich by Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt. 

“If you noticed in the race he was grimacing towards the end," Mills told Jamaica’s Hitz 92fm.


Dr. Muller-Wohlfahrt has treated Bolt several times in the past and helped him round into gold-medal shape ahead of any major global championship.

Bolt is expected to race the 100 meters on Friday against Olympic decathlon champion and world record holder Ashton Eaton. He will return to Jamaica for a 100 meter race on June 11 against Yohan Blake and Asafa Powell. Blake finished behind Bolt in the 100 and 200 at the 2012 Olympics.

Bolt looks to make even more Olympic history in Rio de Janeiro as he tries to defend his 100, 200 and 4x100-meter titles for a third-straight time.
