Usain Bolt ran the greatest time of the year in his first 100m race of 2012 at the Jamaica International Invitational. The 25-year-old ran 9.82 seconds in a Jamaican one-two-three in Kingston, with Michael Frater 2nd in 10.00 and Lerone Clarke 3rd in 10.03. Yohan Blake, the world 100 champion, watches the best time of the year in the 200m with 19.91. “It’s a good start, I would say,” said Bolt, who beat Blake’s 100m season’s best of 9.90.
“I feel better than last year, so I’m certainly happy with myself. I don’t think my execution was perfect, but I think for my first race it was good.” World and Olympic champion Bolt and team-mate Blake face trials next month for London 2012. And Bolt, who was banned from last year’s 100m final at the world championships because of a false start, held his courage after two false starts by participantâ€™s in Kingston.
“A couple of false starts will throw you off, but I stayed focused and went out there and executed as best as possible, so I’m just happy with myself,” he said. A bullish Blake added: “Bolt erased my world lead in the 100 so I thought I would set a world lead in the 200.” Britain’s Christine Ohuruogu completed third with 50.93 in the 400m event behind Jamaican Novelene Williams-Mills (49.99) and American Sanya Richards-Ross. Larry Achike was 2nd in the triple jump, Tiffany Porter ended third in the 100m hurdles, and Andy Turner was 4th in the 110m hurdles.
