Bolt backs fast Rome track to banish Ostrava blues
Usain Bolt is hoping the track in Rome will help propel him to a fast time and banish memories of his poor showing in Ostrava four days ago.
Running into a slight headwind, the Jamaican superstar recorded his worst time for three years in the Czech Republic. His time of 10.04sec over 100m was still good enough to win but the Olympic champion is hoping it was just a one-off.
“I definitely think Rome is a fast track, Asafa (Powell) proved that when I think he ran 9.7sec twice on this track,” said Bolt. “That’s good, I’m looking forward to competing in the lead up to the trials in Jamaica.”
