November 16 - Usain Bolt's confirmation tonight as World Athlete of the Year for the fifth time was accompanied by his announcement of two new targets - to break his own 200 metres world record this season, and, perhaps, to run at the 2017 World Championships in London.
Bolt - whose fellow sprinter Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce made it a Jamaican double as she collected her first World Athlete of the Year award - responded when asked about the possibility of running a sub 19sec 200m that it is his "main focus for this season".
"That has always been my dream, that has always been my aim," Bolt said.
"This season will be the season when I will be going for world records because there are no major championships.
"I have only been back in training for a week-and-a-half and my muscles are a bit sore, but I will be okay.
"I will have a check-up with the doctor as a precautionary measure to make sure I am ready to attack that world record.
"The 200m is much easier to try for a record and that would be my main focus this season."
On his previous announcement that he will seek three more Olympic golds at the Rio 2016 Games before retiring, Bolt suggested that he might go on beyond to compete at the 2017 World Championships in London.
"I was having some talk talking about this with my coach, and I was saying people had said I should go for another year," Bolt said.
Fraser-Pryce, who matched Bolt's achievement of world golds at 100, 200 and 4x100m this season - said she would also be looking at new targets next season.
"I still haven't run 10.6, and I still haven't run 21sec," she said.
It was only the second time a Jamaican woman has won this award following Merlene Ottey's success in 1990, and only the third time that athletes from the same country had won awards in the same year.
