Bolt considers next year's Commonwealth Games

Usain Bolt says he might make a first appearance at the Commonwealth Games, to be held next year in Glasgow, as the Jamaican sprint star seeks to add another title to the resume he embellished with his second world 100 metres gold medal on Monday morning in Moscow.

2014 is an off year for the Olympics and World Championships, and after regaining his world crown, Bolt's plan to compete in Glasgow seems to be firming up, having first hinted at the idea some time ago.

Bolt says he tries not to avoid stress in "off-years", but he's giving serious consideration to competing at the Commonwealth Games for the first time.
