Six-time Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt says he is feeling strong and will be aiming for a fast time in the 100 metres when he competes at the Cayman Invitational Wednesday.
Jamaica's Usain Bolt is shown during the London 2012 Olympic Games on August 5, 2012. The six-time Olympic gold medallist says he is feeling strong and will be aiming for a fast time in the 100 metres when he competes at the Cayman Invitational Wednesday.
"I am definitely going to try running my fastest, pushing myself because I am feeling good," said Jamaican sprint star Bolt.
Bolt says he is over the hamstring strain which kept him out of a Jamaican meet last weekend.
He said his withdrawal from the Jamaica Invitational was simply a precaution because he had been feeling some pain in the days leading up to the event.
Bolt was down to run the 200 metres but said "it would be more damaging if I had taken on the curve."
On Wednesday, Bolt will run from lane four.
