You probably didn’t see this since you were probably at work or if you were at home, may not have access to Universal Sports. Well, Usain Bolt was on the track in Rome on Thursday for the IAAF Diamond League Golden Gala. It was Bolt’s first 100 meters race of the year and the first time he was on the track since August of last year. This comes courtesy of Universal Sports and I thank them for allowing me to embed this video here. The races are called by BBC Sport announcers. I think this is Steve Cram on the call for the Usain Bolt race.
As you saw, Bolt edged fellow Jamaican Asafa Powell.
Our next video is from the Women’s 400 meters and American Allyson Felix won this rather handily. Olympic silver medalist and current world champion Sanya Richards-Ross finished a disappointing fifth.
And that will do it. Again thanks to Universal Sports for giving me the videos to post for you. The next IAAF Diamond League meet will be the Steve Prefontaine Classic in Eugene, OR and will be aired on NBC Sports.
