Usain Bolt Men’s 100m Ostrava Golden Spike 2016
8 months ago 8
Usain Bolt won the 100 metres at the Czech Golden Spike event in 9.98 seconds, his second victory this season in the run-up to August’s Rio Olympics.
Bolt said he was not “fully happy,” blaming a poor first part of the race on failing to meet his plan of 9.8 seconds in the eastern Czech city of Ostrava.
“My first 40m was kind of sluggish,” he said after beating Ramon Gittens of Barbados by 0.23 seconds and third-placed Hassan Taftian by 0.27.
“My reaction was good, I think the only problem I had was support behind the start was not there, I didn’t execute, I didn’t get the power through the first 40.”
“So I had to work a little bit harder at the end to get up the speed. If I can improve that it should be OK,” Bolt said.
Bolt had to see his German doctor earlier this week over a tight hamstring he had picked up at the Cayman Invitational Meet last week when he clocked 10.05 seconds.
