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.
