Bolt turned his main focus to the m and equalled Roy Martin 's world junior record of Indeed, at sixteen years old, Bolt had reached times that Johnson did not register until he was twenty, and Bolt's m time was superior to Maurice Greene 's season's best that year.
Bolt was growing more popular in his homeland. Howard Hamilton, who was given the task of Public Defender by the government, urged the JAAA to nurture him and prevent burnout , calling Bolt "the most phenomenal sprinter ever produced by this island".
Bolt was increasingly unfocused on his athletic career and preferred to eat fast food, play basketball, and party in Kingston's club scene.
In the absence of a disciplined lifestyle, he became ever-more reliant on his natural ability to beat his competitors on the track.
As the reigning m champion at both the World Youth and World Junior championships, Bolt hoped to take a clean sweep of the world m championships in the Senior World Championships in Paris.
Bolt was pragmatic about his chances and noted that, even if he did not make the final, he would consider setting a personal best a success.
Bolt was dismayed at missing out on the opportunity, but focused on getting himself in shape to gain a place on the Jamaican Olympic team instead.
Under the guidance of new coach Fitz Coleman , Bolt turned professional in , beginning with the CARIFTA Games in Bermuda.
However, he was hampered by a leg injury and was eliminated in the first round of the metres with a disappointing time of The year signalled a fresh start for Bolt in the form of a new coach, Glen Mills , and a new attitude toward athletics.
Mills recognised Bolt's potential and aimed to cease what he considered an unprofessional approach to the sport. Misfortune awaited Bolt at the next major event, the World Championships in Helsinki.
Bolt felt that both his work ethic and athleticism had much improved since the Olympics, and he saw the World Championships as a way to live up to expectations, stating, "I really want to make up for what happened in Athens.
Hopefully, everything will fall into place". Bolt was less enthusiastic, and demanded that he feel comfortable in his sprinting. The m remained Bolt's primary event when he returned to competition; he bested Justin Gatlin 's meet record in Ostrava , Czech Republic.
Bolt had aspired to run under twenty seconds to claim a season's best but, despite the fact that bad weather had impaired his run, he was happy to end the meeting with just the victory.
Also, he was more keen on competing over longer distances, setting his sights on running regularly in both m and m events within the next two years.
Bolt claimed his first major world medal two months later at the IAAF World Athletics Final in Stuttgart , Germany.
He passed the finishing post with a time of He yearned to run in the metres but Mills was skeptical, believing that Bolt was better suited for middle distances.
The coach cited the runner's difficulty in smoothly starting out of the blocks and poor habits such as looking back at opponents in sprints.
Mills told Bolt that he could run the shorter distance if he broke the m national record. Mills complied with Bolt's demand to run in the m, and he was entered to run the event at the 23rd Vardinoyiannia meeting in Rethymno , Crete.

However, he surmised that such comments stemmed from his lack of enthusiasm for the metres event; he chose not to make an effort to train for that particular distance.
Bolt was more focused in practice, and a training schedule to boost his top speed and his stamina, in preparation for the Olympics, had improved both his m and m times.
Bolt doubled-up with the metres and metres events at the Beijing Summer Olympics. As the new m world-record holder, he was the favourite to win both races.

Bolt stated that setting a world record was not a priority for him, and that his goal was just to win the gold medal, Jamaica's first of the Games.
When I saw I wasn't covered, I was just happy". Jamaican government minister Edmund Bartlett also defended Bolt's actions, stating, "We have to see it in the glory of their moment and give it to them.
We have to allow the personality of youth to express itself". Bolt then focused on attaining a gold medal in the m event, aiming to emulate Carl Lewis ' double win in the Los Angeles Olympics.

He was served an unexpected defeat by Justin Gatlin , with the American winning 9. Bolt denied the loss was due to a hamstring issue he had early that year and Gatlin responded: "I don't know how many people have beaten Bolt but it's an honour".
