World record-holder Usain Bolt put his poor performance in the Czech Republic behind him with a new season’s best of 9.76 seconds in the 100-metre race at the Golden Gala on Thursday.
Bolt ran a relatively slow 10.04 in Ostrava last week, raising questions about his Olympic preparations.
While his start in Rome still wasn’t exceptional, Bolt quickly pulled in front.
Former world record-holder Asafa Powell crossed second in 9.91 and European champion Christophe Lemaitre was third in 10.04.
