Race Announcement – London Anniversary Games 26-27th July

17th April 2013 – One year after winning three gold medals in the 2012 Olympic Games in London Usain will return to the Olympic stadium on 26-27th July for the London Anniversary Games.  It will be the first time for the Jamaican superstar to compete in the London leg of the IAAF Diamond League since 2009 and he is looking forward to the challenge, “I’m looking forward to coming back to the UK, especially with it being a year since winning three gold medals in the Olympic Stadium. The crowd were amazing at the Games, and I hope they will be out again in their numbers at the end of July.  I haven’t competed at the London Diamond League since 2009 but it has always been a great meet with lots of Jamaican support – it almost feels like running at home.”  Usain will compete in the 100m on Friday 26th July and in the 4x100m on Saturday 7th July.  Tickets information is available at www.britishathletics.org.uk
