2013-02-09 20:41:43 | (0 Comments)
Olympic 100 and 200 metres sprint champion Usain Bolt began his 2013 season on a moderate note earlier today with a 46.71 clocking over 400 metres at the Camperdown Classic track and field meet at the National Stadium.
"I was a bit nervous at the start, but I felt good during the race and I am not worried about the time as I am very happy that I was able to complete the race and win it. It was also good to get in my first run of the season ... this is a confidence booster for me," Bolt said.
Bolt won heat two of the time finals ahead of another national representative, Allodin Fothergill, who clocked 46.82.
Warren Weir, the London Olympics 200 metres bronze medallist, clocked the fastest time, 46.21, in winning heat three where Yohan Blake was third in 46.77. Blake won silver medals in both the 100m and 200m at the London Games.
