Bolt in Zagreb

Usain Bolt headlines the list of athletes down to participate in the IAAF World Challenge scheduled for Zagbreb, Croatia on Tuesday, September 13.

Since the 100 metres disqualification in Daegu, South Korea 15 days ago, this will be Bolt’s first 100 metres. He will face bronze medalist, Kim Collins along with Justin Gatlin (USA) and Richard Thompson (TT).

In Daegu, Bolt recovered the dreaded false start to win the 200 metres in 19.40 seconds, the fourth fastest time over the distance and still holds the world record for that event, 19.19 seconds; and anchored Jamaica’s team to a world record in the 4 X 100 metres in 37.04 seconds.

This IAAF Challenge is being held for the 61st time and Bolt along with the other competitors, most of whom are still celebrating from their success in Daegu complete one of the best fields for the Croatia event.
