Usain Bolt to run in Zurich Diamond League
Zurich: Sprint legend Usain Bolt is among six Jamaicans confirmed for the Diamond League meeting in Zurich Thursday.
Bolt will compete in the men`s 100 metres, his first race since the Moscow World Championships.
The six-time Olympic champion stole the spotlight at the Moscow World Championships by completing a triple gold-medal performance.
Bolt will race against three other Jamaicans -- Nesta Carter, the 100-metre bronze medallist at the Moscow World Championships, Nickel Ashmeade and Kemar Bailey Cole -- in the short sprint.
The race also includes American Justin Gatlin, who won the silver medal behind Bolt in the 100 metres at the Moscow World Championships.
Jamaican sprint queen Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is also down to compete in Zurich, her first outing after creating history in Moscow.
Fraser-Pryce became the first woman in world championships history to sweep the sprint events, when she anchored Jamaica to gold in the 4x100-metre relay final to finish the championships with three gold medals, just like Bolt.
Fraser-Pryce will again come face-to-face with the big Ivory Coast sprinter Murielle Ahoure.
The other Jamaican down to compete in Zurich is 400-metre hurdler Kaliese Spencer, who takes part in her second outing since the World Championships and will again face the Moscow gold medallist Zuzana Hejnova of the Czech Republic.
