Usain Bolt is looking forward to performing at his best again after being slowed by a hamstring injury a month ago.
The 100m world record holder said his hamstring “is much, much better now” and that “everything is coming together” ahead of his European debut this year at Thursday’s Golden Gala meet.
The six-time Olympic champion added that he’s been “doing a lot of work” on his speed endurance.
Bolt ran the 100 only once this year, narrowly winning in a relatively slow 10.09 seconds in the Cayman Islands a month ago.
It’s the third consecutive year Bolt is running at the Stadio Olimpico. He won in 9.91 in 2011 and in 9.76 last year.
