Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt recovered from yet another horrific start to barely win the 100-meters at the Weltklasse Diamond League meeting in Zurich on Thursday night.
By Bolt’s standards, he looked bad. The Jamaican was the last runner out of the blocks in a field of nine before a last-minute kick gave him an edge to win in 9.90 seconds. He had to work all the way to the line, only beginning to create a lead at the 80-meter mark.
He went on to say, “I’m tired, it’s a good thing everyone else is tired too. I’m happy I came out victorious.”
This race came eighteen days after Bolt won three gold medals in the 100 meters, the 200 meters, and the 4×100 at the World Championships in Moscow.
