- Sprint king Usain Bolt says he will retire after the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro
- Bolt has won 14 gold medals combined at the Olympics and world championships
- The Jamaican owns the world record in both the 100 and 200 meters
- He achieved another individual sprint double in Moscow last month
(CNN) -- During the world championships in Moscow last month, sprint king Usain Bolt was asked how long he intended to keep running.
He kept reporters guessing and some thought he wouldn't last until the next Olympics.
But on Wednesday Bolt said that he would call it quits after racing at the 2016 Summer Games in Brazil.
"So far it's after the Olympics in Rio," the 27-year-old told reporters in Brussels, where he is competing Friday. "If I'm in great shape and I go there and do what I have to do, I think it would be a good time to retire on top and having dominated for so long."
The Jamaican admitted he struggled with his motivation this year and it is little wonder given he has regularly coasted to 100- and 200-meter victories at the Olympics and world championships.
"I couldn't find that goal, that drive to get going again," Bolt said. "I sat down and thought to myself -- what do I really want? And what can I do in this sport some more?"
Including relays, Bolt owns a combined 14 gold medals in the sport's two biggest events and is the world record-holder in both the 100 and 200 meters.
