Usain Bolt to run 200m at the ExxonMobil Bislett Games – Samsung Diamond League

The triple World record holder, Usain Bolt, will be competing in the ExxonMobil Bislett Games on 9 June in Oslo, Norway in the 200 metres.

The meeting in Oslo is one of 14 Samsung Diamond League meets in 2011 and the first in which Bolt has confirmed his participation.

“I am looking forward to compete for the first time in front of the famous Bislett stadium crowd in Oslo. I hold three World records but I hear this track has an incredible 69 World records on it so it will be nice to run in such a famous stadium,” said Bolt in a press release from the organisers.

In addition to holding the World record for the 200 metres, Bolt also holds the World record in 100 metres and 4 x 100 metres Relay along with the Jamaican sprint team. Bolt is also triple reigning World and Olympic champion.

“As this year is a World Championship year every meet is important for me in the build up to defending my titles. My competition at Bislett and several other Samsung Diamond League meets throughout the season will be an important stepping stone towards that goal.

“My preparations have gone really well, the injury problem I had during the summer is fully healed and my training has gone according to plan. I have never been to Norway before so I will come to Bislett prepared and ready to run a fast race and entertain the fans,” said Bolt.
