Jamaican track star Usain Bolt is undoubtedly one of the fastest men in the world, and he proved that again this week by taking home the Jamaican 100-meter title at the Jamaican nationals in Kingston on Friday. Bolt is looking to get in prime shape for the world track and field championships in Moscow next week and he did a respectable job by running a 9.94 seconds in the 100m Friday.
“It’s all about getting through and getting it done and that’s what I did,” Bolt said, via NBC Sports. “I’ve got a lot more work to do. As long as the coach is not worried, I’m not worried.”
If Bolt plans to shine at the worlds, he is going to need to pick up the pace and work on getting quicker starts to beat the Americans, who have outpaced him so far this year. Bolt has already lost to Justin Gatlin this year, and Tyson Gay put together a time that would have left the Jamaican in the dust.
You can never count out Bolt, who will be looking to prove himself at worlds, so it is going to be a must-see event.
