Sprinters To Run Less Rounds At Daegu World Championships

Usain Bolt and fellow sprinters will run fewer rounds at this year’s IAAF World Athletic Championships in Daegu, South Korea, from Aug. 27-Sept. 4.

Bolt now only have to run six times, as opposed to eight in previous years – to defend his sprint double at the championships.

The IAAF said Tuesday: “a brand new and modern approach has led to a revamped and revolutionized competition timetable which has been designed in order to reach optimum impact.”

Bolt looked a bit tired at the last world championships in Berlin in 2009, but still managed to set a world record in the 200m – a sparkling 19.19 seconds.

This was after he set a world record of 9.58secs in the 100m.
