World record holder Usain Bolt says he is not worried about his preparation to defend his sprint double titles at the upcoming IAAF World Championships.

The Jamaican started his season slowly but has evidently picked up his form in the last few outings – setting seasonal bests of 19.86 seconds in Oslo for the 200m and most recently, a 9.88secs over 100m in Monaco.

Bolt’s slow starts have seen his competitions running closer to him than usual, but the reigning World and Olympic sprint champion isn’t panicking.

“I’m not worried about either the 100m or the 200m, my best event,” said Bolt.

The 24-year-old has however, reflected on some of the areas he will need to work on in his 100m race when he goes back to the training ground.

“I’m getting better. I’ve dramatically improved over the last 60m,” he commented. “I need to work on my first 40m, specifically the first 20m.”
