Jamaica’s Usain Bolt shook off a “horrible start” to win the 100m at the Racers Grand Prix athletics meeting the second-fastest time in the world this year.

Bolt clocked 9.88sec to win ahead of Nickel Ashmeade and Yohan Blake.

“It wasn’t a perfect race, but the good thing was that I won and I came out injury free,” said Bolt, who got away slowly but powered home, catching the field at about 50 meters and celebrating as he got to the line first to the delight of a 30,000 crowd at the national stadium in Kingston.

Bolt improved on the 9.98sec he posted in Ostrava on May 20. – Agence France-Presse
