usain bolt diamond league

Triple world record holder Usain Bolt clocked a season-best 9.88 seconds to win the 100m at the Diamond League In Monaco overcoming a slow start to inch out Nesta Carter.

“I came into the race but didn’t execute well. I had to work hard and concentrate,” said Bolt. “There are some little things to work on. I have time before the World Championships and I will continue to do my best.”

Bolt said he was feeling comfortable with his final 60m, saying his focus in training would be on the first 40m and his start.

“I’m almost back to 100 per cent on the final 60m and I’ve got to work on the first half. I’ll take it one step at a time and hopefully the next race will be better.”
