News Americas, Paris, France, Fri. July 8, 2011: Jamaica’s top sprinter, Usain Lightning Bolt, is set to strike in Paris today.
Bolt will run his second 200 meters of the season today, Friday, July 8th at the Meeting Areva – Samsung Diamond League – in Paris’ Stade de France.
The 24-year-old World and Olympic 100 and 200m champion and World record holder, told a media corp of over 135 Thursday: “I’ve been training and training and this (200-m) race (in Paris) is all about execution. Executing this race right, that’s all I’m concentrating on in Paris.”
Since his 19.86 sec 200-m in Oslo on June 9th, Bolt has been “back to Jamaica.”
“Me and my coach sat down and watched a few tapes (of his opening three races – Rome 26 May, Ostrava 31 June, and Oslo) and we worked on what we needed to work on, and I’m feeling much better, I’m feeling more confident,” said Bolt. “My technique and fluency wasn’t there my coach says, I didn’t look as smooth as usual. My start was ok but when I got into my drive phase it wasn’t as fluent as it usually is.”
