USAIN Bolt's coach, Glen Mills, believes the Olympic and world 100 and 200 metres champion could reach his peak for 2012 when the London Olympics take place.

Bolt, 24, has returned to training after back and Achilles injuries cut short his 2010 season and forced him to miss the Commonwealth Games. Mills told BBC 5 Live: 'If the conditions are right I think he can continue to improve.

I think that he has another two years of development still in him before he probably peaks.'

The double world record holder ended his season in August after losing to Tyson Gay over 100 metres in Stockholm – his first defeat in two years.

But after a break, he is now focused on retaining his 100 and 200 metres titles in the 2011 World Championship in Korea, which starts in late August.

And Mills believes that the 2012 London Olympics could be another high point for Bolt, adding: 'Peaking in 2012 is what we are hoping for and some warm Jamaican weather in London would go far to help us to achieve what we want.'
