The sprint sensation said he and his team-mates were well focused on  winning at the Franklin Field Stadium on Saturday and they did just that – proving that the Glen Mills coached club is stepping up.

“We came here really focused and ready (to) executed,” the lanky sprinter said.

Bolt also admits that they have put in a two week specialty just for the carnival.

He said: “We even marked out just like the Penn Relays on our track, so he (his coach) was really into it.

“It’s a very good stepping stone to show that our track club is stepping up and doing well,” he said.

“Especially on this 4×100, we’ve been doing baton changes for two weeks.”

The team of Mario Forsythe, Yohan Blake, Marvin Anderson and Bolt clocked 37.90secs to set a new Penn Relays time for the event.

Bolt, who set world record to win the sprint double in Berlin last summer, powered to a blistering 8.79seconds anchor leg after getting the baton slightly behind.

    I was there and the race was well run, well executed and Mr. Bolt did not have to exert himself after receiving the baton from Marvin. Thanks Mr. Bolt , Yohan Mario and Marvin. My $48 was well spent just by seeing that win over the U.S Team
