Bolt says he is ready to reclaim world 100m title
Moscow: Sprint sensation Usain Bolt says he is ready to reclaim the 100 metres title he lost two years ago and to successfully defend the 200m at the IAAF World Championships starting here this weekend.
Bolt has declared himself `ready’ and has stepped up training since his arrival in Moscow for the Aug 10-18 games at the Luzhniki Stadium.
“Of course, it`s very important (to win back the title)," the 26-year-old Bolt said of the 100m crown he lost to injured teammate Yohan Blake when he false-started in Daegu, South Korea, in 2011.
The loss however has hardly scared an impressive resume that includes Olympic gold in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay events in Beijing and London, and five world titles.
"I want to keep winning every race that I compete in, and the 100m and 200m finals in Moscow will be the biggest races for me this year," the Jamaican said.
"It`s why I`m working hard with my coach to give myself the chance to do that."
The world record holder in both the 100m and 200m added: "My season has been good, I`m getting stronger every week and my execution and speed endurance is steadily improving.”
"Right now I`m in good shape, focused and feeling well, training hard, and I`m ready."
