Oslo – 9.79 Seconds

Usain Bolt clocked 9.79 seconds to win in Oslo on Thursday, June 7 over countryman, Asafa Powell, who was 2nd in 9.85. Bolt erased the old Meeting Record mark of 9.88 held by Ato Boldon back in 1988. Lerone Clarke ran 10.10 seconds to finish third and complete the trifecta for Jamaica.

Of the 12 times Bolt and Powell have met at this level, Bolt has edged his countryman 11 times. Bolt was coming off a 9.76 world leading run in Rome on May 31st.

Bolt was pleased with his execution and said afterwards that he is “going home to top it up and get ready for the Jamaican trials.” The Jamaican trials and championships are set for June 28 to July 1 in Kingston.

    the image of a user in his/her mind that how a user can understand it.

    Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
    website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for
    another platform. I would be awesome if you could
    point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine
    but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very
    good blog!
