Watch live video highlights of Usain Bolt winning the 400m in the 2010 opener at the Camperdown Classics on Saturday Feb 13.
Triple world and Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt opened his season with a meet record 45.86 seconds for 400 meters at the Camperdown Classic on Saturday.
“I guess I am getting there,” Bolt told reporters. “I never felt as good as I wanted to, but it was a good race.
“My coach spoke to me about running the first 200 meters too hard, so I tried to pace myself and bring it home nice and smooth,” said the 100 and 200 meters world record holder, who runs the 400 early in the season as part of his training.
Racing in lane four, Bolt established a commanding lead down the backstretch, then cruised to the fastest 400 meters run at the six-year-old meeting.
