Injured Usain Bolt will learn on Thursday if he will have his chance to run for a third consecutive Olympic gold medal in the 100 meters, 200m and 4x100 relay. 

A Jamaican Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) committee will consider Bolt's medical exemption request to be allowed to run in the 100 and 200 and on the relay -- all events he won at the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympics.

Reigning 100 and 200 world champion and world record-holder Bolt said Friday after pulling out of the 100m final at the Jamaican Olympic Trials that he has suffered a slight hamstring tear, later posting photographs on social media of what appeared to be him receiving treatment on his left hamstring.
