News Americas, DAEGU, Korea, Sat. Aug. 27, 2011: Reigning World record holder and triple Olympian, Usain Bolt, may be the name of everyone’s lips but he’s not the only Caribbean athlete competing for a spot in the men’s 100-m finals in Daegu tomorrow.

There are nine Caribbean athletes running in the semi-finals tomorrow.

Bolt is in “heat two” along with fellow Jamaican Michael Frater and Trinidad’s Richard Thompson. He won his heat in 10.10 seconds to advance to Sunday’s semifinals.
“I feel great. I did well. People are going to say what they want but I’ll focus on what I want. Nobody has broken my world record,” Bolt told AFP. “I’ve worked during the season. I’ve worked it out so that’s why it looked so easy — focus and exercise. I was really happy because I worked hard all season. I finally got it right.”

Also competing in the semi-finals heat is St. Kitts’ Kim Collins along with Jamaica’s Nesta Carter and Yohan Blake, Barbados’ Andrew Hinds, Antigua’s Daniel Bailey and Trinidad’s Keston Bledman.
