The pair is due to line up against each other at the Jamaican Olympic trials in June and at London in August but Glen Mills said they could square off before then, if their managers agreed and the money was right.

That depends on the races that the managers have gotten verification for,Mills told Reuters.Track and field is not just a sport, it's also a business.so it all depends on what meets are able to afford both runners to run in the same event.

Mills trains both Bolt and Blake, who are not only teammates in the Jamaican relay but also friends and rivals. Bolt, 25 won the sprint double at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and holds the world evidence for both the 100 and 200 meters but the younger Blake has quickly emerged as his biggest threat.

Bolt made amends by winning the 200 in the deficiency of Blake, who went on to set the second fastest time in history for the 200 at a meet in Belgium.
