Bolt nails Cayman 100m in photo finish

BOLT ZAGREBGEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands, May 9 – Six-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt edged teammate Kemar Bailey-Cole in a photo finish to win the 100 metres at the Cayman Invitational track meet on Wednesday.

Jamaica’s Bolt kicked his 100-metre season off Wednesday with a less than impressive time of 10.09 seconds at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex.

Bailey-Cole, who finished with the same time, is one of Bolt’s training partners. Antiguan Daniel Bailey finished third with a time of 10.23.

Bolt has been battling a hamstring problem but said that wasn’t to blame for the slow time.

“It was just a bad race,” he said. “I just have to go back and figure out with my coach what went wrong.

“I felt it (hamstring injury) slightly. It wasn’t a bothering pain so I can’t blame it on that.”

In the women’s events, American Carmelita Jeter became the first to finish in under 11 seconds in the 100 metres, winning with a time of 10.95.

    As an analyst, I am not comfortable with the figures given. What percentage do the figures represent in the country’s population or those who are computer literate respectively. This will be more meaningful than arbitrary figures given because of limitations such as geographical size of a country or variations on demographics. For instance, Nigeria has more than 5 times Kenyan population.
