American rugby player Carlin Isles has launched an ambitious bid to represent the United States in two different sports at a single Olympic games after deciding to resurrect his sprinting career.Isles – popularly known as "The Fastest Man In Rugby" – took up the seven-a-side version of the sport in 2012 after previously failing to make the U.S. Olympic team for the London Games.Now Isles, who is virtually certain to be selected for the U.S. Sevens squad for Rio de Janeiro as rugby returns to the Olympics for the first time since 1924, is hoping to win a place in the American track and field contingent as well.
