STAR POWER: Bolt prepares to dazzle local fans at May 5 'Invitational'
“It is always a great privilege to run in front of my home fans. There is always great energy and excitement in the stadium, and I will look to put on a good show for the fans. This will be my first big meet of 2012 as I prepare to defend my titles in the Olympic Games in London in August.”
So says the World’s Fastest Lover Boy, Usain Bolt, who has been announced as one of a number of international athletes slated to line up for the May 5 Jamaica National International Invitational.
The athletic powerhouse has a great history with this event which is now an IAAF World Challenge Meet. This was where he posted his impressive 9.76 seconds in the 100m in 2008. He is a three times winner of the 200m (2005, 2006 and 2010) with a best performance of 19.56 seconds. The top athlete is also confirmed for the Golden Spike in Ostrava, Golden Gala in Rome and Bislett Games in Oslo. And, naturally, the London Olympic Games this summer.
