Rio de Janeiro (dpa) - Sprint superstar Usain Bolt said Monday that he is aspiring to better his 200-metre world record at the Rio Olympics, despite struggling with a hamstring injury earlier this year.

"I really, really, really want that one," he told journalists at a packed press conference in Rio which also featured samba dancers. "It hasn‘t been the perfect season, but I‘m in much better shape."

Bolt, who will be turning 30 on the last day of the Rio Games, August 21, reiterated that this would be his last Olympics.

"A lot of people are not happy, but sorry," he said. "I think this is the last one for sure."

Bolt is seeking a unique third sprint treble at the Olympics after winning the 100m, 200m and 4x100m in 2008 and 2012. The 11-time world champion holds the world records over 100m (9.58 seconds) and 200m (19.19), both achieved at the 2009 worlds in Berlin
