Jamaican track star Usain Bolt is coming off of a surprising loss to American sprinter Justin Gatlin in the 100m at the Rome Diamond League meet last week, but he is already set to get back to the track and his winning ways at the Bislett Games in Oslo on Thursday when he runs the 200m.

I’m feeling pretty good,” Bolt said ahead of tomorrow’s race, via Sky Sports. “I think I’m in shape to run under 20 seconds. It’s all about the execution and getting it right.”

Despite his recent loss, Bolt says that his fans having nothing at all to worry about.

“I’m always confident in whatever I am doing,” Bolt stated. “As long as my coach is not worried, I’m not worried, and my coach is not worried. So I’m definitely confident that I’ll be up to standard, that I’ll be able to perform to defend my titles.”

There is no question that Bolt is the top track athlete in the world and the most notable, so when he is doing well it is great for the sport.

It says a lot about the popularity of Bolt that we are writing about his 200m race in Oslo in the middle of June.
