Zagreb: The world`s fastest man Usain Bolt is seeking redemption for his world championship 100 meters final disqualification in Tuesday`s grand prix meeting in Zagreb.

"I look at this as an opportunity to make up for the world championship, I am looking forward to this," the lanky Jamaican, who holds the 100 meters world record, told a news conference in the Croatian capital on Monday.

The Zagreb grand prix will be Bolt`s first 100 meters race since his controversial disqualification for a false start in the final in Daegu, South Korea last month.

"I am coming here to do my best, to try to run fast. I missed out on the world championship, so I want to see how fast I could have gone. I am still feeling good. I am pretty confident and am just looking forward to it," Bolt said.

"I am focused, determined to be the best at what I do, so I am just looking forward to the rest of my season and the rest of my career."
