Bolt to run at Diamond League meet, July 4th

Jamaican Track and field megastar Usain Bolt will line-up in the 100m at the Diamond League meeting in Paris on July 4.

Organizers say they managed to lure Bolt to run only his third ever 100m on the Stade de France track, his first since 2010, after liasing with other meet directors.

Bolt is the 100m world record holder, winner of the 100m gold medals at the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games and has won world titles at this event in 2009 and 2013.

He holds the Paris 100m meeting record with 9.79, which he clocked in 2009. It completes some unfinished business for the Jamaican.
