In case you missed it, sprint sensation Usain Bolt sent a stern warning to his rivals as he launched his Olympic season with a world-leading 9.82 seconds in the 100 metres at the JN Jamaica Invitational last Saturday night.
Running in his first race of perhaps his most important season ever, the Olympic sprint double champion easily sped away from his field at the National Stadium to reach the line ahead of fellow Jamaicans Michael Frater who finished second in 10 seconds and Lerone Clarke who was third in 10.03 seconds.
Watch the 100 metres race below:
“It is a good start I would say. It (preparation) was better than last year so I am definitely happy with myself,” Bolt told reporters afterward.
“I don’t think the execution was perfect but I think for my first race it was good so I am happy with it.”
He added: “I was trying to stay focused, a couple of false starts really threw me off but I was just trying to stay focused and went out there and executed as best as possible.” (CMC)
