Bolt, Blake, Kaliese finish season in style

 

Brussells, Belgium (AFP): Sprint sensation Usain Bolt overcame a terrible start to round off his season with a victory in 9.86 seconds in the 100m at the Diamond League meet here yesterday.

Bolt's reaction time out of the blocks left him chasing St Kitts and Nevis veteran Kim Collins in front of a packed King Baudouin Stadium.

Fresh from claiming a second successive treble gold medal haul at the London Olympics, Bolt's pick-up was also slack, but his trademark strong drive phase saw him surge past the rest of the field. The towering Jamaican even had enough room to ease up a full 10 metres from the line before quickly undoing the laces of his spikes and hurling them into the crowd.

Bolt's compatriots Nesta Carter (9.96) and Kemar Bailey-Cole (9.97) finished in second and third positions. "I'm just happy to have got through the season," said Bolt. "The key coming here was for the fans and just to get through injury free. "Coming into this, I did a start yesterday (Thursday) and I said to my coach I'm so tired. I went through the motions, it was an okay race — I didn't lose." Bolt played down fears that he would be overwhelmed by his return to Jamaica after his amazing season.
