Bolt to run 100m in Monaco

PARIS, March 3 – World and Olympic double sprint champion Usain Bolt of Jamaica will race in this season's Diamond League meeting in Monaco on July 22, organisers confirmed Thursday.

Bolt will run the 100m in what should be a key warm-up ahead of the August 27-September 4 World Athletics Championships in Daegu, South Korea.

"I am really looking forward to running for the first time in Monaco," said Bolt. "I have been there several times at the IAAF Gala but have never actually competed there.

"Monaco is a beautiful place … I like the warm weather and the fast track and hope to perform well in the Herculis meeting for its 25th anniversary."

The 24-year-old, who set world records in the 100 (9.58sec) and 200m (19.19) at the 2009 world champs in Berlin, will also race in Diamond League events in Rome on May 26, Oslo on June 9 and Paris on July 8.
