Athletics: Bolt Promise To Spark At Anniversary Games

Jamaican Sprinter and World Record Holder Usain Bolt have promised to give his best when he takes part in the 100m race at the Anniversary Games tonight.

The Jamaican who would be running at the same London Olympic Stadium where he won three gold medals in 2012 is aware of the fact that some skeptic are of the opinion that he can’t hit the blazing form that made won six Olympic and eight world championship titles again but he said he has rediscovered his form in training and he intend to show that.

I won’t know until I race but I’ve been training good and working really hard, It just takes one run to get to 9.7 so I’m not worried about times. I remember in 2011 I was really struggling yet when I came to the championships I was in great form. OK, I false-started in the 100m final but the 200m was pretty good. I’m sure that when I get to the championships I will always be ready” the Jamaican said.

Bolt performance has been a little bit below par when compared to that of Justin Gatlin who has been near-metronomic in running the four fastest 100m times in the world – 9.74, 9.75, 9.75, 9.78 compared to Bolt sole best of 10.12, yet this doesn’t bother the Jamaican has he had this to say “In 100m I never get nervous,” he says. “We’ve been doing a lot of work on the start so I just have to execute. The first 40m of a 100m is the weakest part of my race so I am working extremely hard in getting that right. If I do, I will have no issues”.
