Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt will end his injury-ridled 2014 season, according to Diamond League meet organizers. Bolt was scheduled to compete in the meet, which begins Thursday.

A statement released by the group says that Bolt's coach, Glen Mills, said Bolt "feels it is now time to shut it down while he is healthy and injury free with a view on his preparations for the 2015 season."

Bolt will resume training in October in preparation for the world championships in Beijing next year.

The announcement comes just a day after Bolt set the indoor world record for 100 meters, clocking in at 9.98 seconds.
