Usain Bolt To Run 100-Meter Adidas Grand Prix

Three-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt will be running the 100-meter Adidas Grand Prix this summer in New York City. This New York meet that is formerly known as the Reebok Grand Prix, will be the fifth stop on the inaugural IAAF Diamond League circuit. The competition will take place on June 12 at Randall’s Island, and will mark Bolt’s first competition in the United States since the Beijing Olympics where he set his first world record. The Jamaican calls the track “lightning fast,” and says that he looks forward to returning to the Big Apple. Bolt won the 100, 200, and 4 x 100 in Beijing in world-record time, and is also the reigning world champion in the 100 and 200.
