Bolt vows to ‘wow’ London Olympics
USAIN Bolt is aiming to “wow” the world with his performances at the Olympics.
Bolt got back into the groove on Thursday night with victory in the Rome Diamond League 100metres in 9.76 seconds, the fastest time in the world this year. It was his fourth fastest time ever, with the previous three all world records.
Bolt said he would draw inspiration from London’s Jamaican community during the Olympics, and he warned rivals like Tyson Gay and Yohan Blake that his Italian job was just the start.
“I know I can go faster because this is the start of the season. I have a long way to go,” Bolt said. “I’m really looking forward to competing here. I haven’t competed in London for a while so I’m really looking forward to it. I know all the Jamaicans living here are looking forward to it also so I’m just preparing to put on a great show. At the end of the day I just want to wow people after this Olympics so I’m looking forward to it.”
Bolt was in London yesterday to launch Jamaica’s Puma kit – designed by Bob Marley’s daughter, Cedella Marley – for the Olympics. Asked whether he will need to improve on 9.76secs to win gold, and whether he can go faster, Bolt said: “That’s what I do. The season is still early. I’m looking forward to it. I’m ready to go.”
