Bolt opened his season with a 10.05 seconds performance last weekend in the Cayman Islands, but he says he’s feeling good and wants to run a 9.80 seconds today. He will be making his 8th appearance in Ostrava and the world record holder has enjoyed some fruitful times in the past at this Golden Spike meeting.

“I had a tight hamstring after my last race,” said Bolt.

“But I went to see a doctor and I’m feeling much better now. I know that the more I run, the better I’ll get, so I’m happy that I started racing early this year.

“If I can continue on the right path to the Olympics, I definitely think world records are possible in Rio,” he added.

“I really want to run sub-19 in the 200m; that’s my focus.”
