American Maurice Greene has plans to run in the masters

Ostrava, Czech Republic (Sporting Alert) — Retired American track and field sprinter Maurice Greene says he has no plans to return to the sport and race in the “Masters.”

He said he has nothing to prove to anyone.

Greene, the World 60m record holder at 6.39 seconds, is also a former world record holder over 100m and a multi Olympic and World Championships gold medallist – who now spends his time enjoying the sport.

The American is currently a guest of honor at the 50th Ostrava Golden Spike meeting in the Czech Republic, which will be held on Tuesday.

Asked if he has any plans to compete in master division Greene replied: “No, really, I do not have to prove anything.”

And Greene holds no grudge at losing his 100m world record, which moved from Asafa Powell to his fellow Jamaican Usain Bolt, who now holds the mark at a blistering 9.58secs.

“It is OK that the sprint records change,” he said. “It means that the event is developing and nobody wants to see the same things for too long.”

Meanwhile, Greene admits that Bolt, the reigning world and Olympic sprint double champion, has been the leading-light in the sprinting events ever since he decided to take up the 100m, prior to his Beijing Olympic glory.

And the American who won the sprint double at the world championships in Sevilla in 1999, said there isn’t a lot of things that ‘impressed him in athletics’, but admits that Bolt transition has.

“There are not many things that can make me impressed in the athletics,” confessed Greene, the Sydney Olympic 100m champion in 2000.

“But one of these things was when Usain Bolt appeared at 100m. I think everybody was amazed with what he did with both world records.”

He added: “We will always get faster somehow. I do not want to estimate it. Everything is developing – the running technique, technologies and also human abilities.”
