ZURICH (AP) — Usain Bolt has decided to end his injury-plagued season early, having competed in just three races in 2014.

Organizers for Thursday’s Diamond League meeting in Zurich said Sunday that Bolt had withdrawn from the event’s 100-meter race and will not compete again this season. The decision comes a day after Bolt won a 100 race in Warsaw, Poland, clocking 9.98 seconds.

The statement said Bolt’s coach Glen Mills “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’s preparations for the season were disrupted by a foot injury and his only other appearances in 2014 were in the 4×100 relay at the Commonwealth Games and a 100 exhibition race in Rio de Janeiro.
