Usain Bolt returns... to the track

For the sixth time in his career Usain Bolt will compete at the Belgacom Memorial. That was confirmed last weekend when General Manager Bob Verbeeck and Meeting Director Wilfried Meert travelled to Jamaica.


There is no doubt that Usain Bolt will again become the great star of the evening. Bolt will decide later this year whether he will compete in either the 100m or the 200m. At previous occasions in Brussels Usain Bolt has never let his fans down:

2007 : 3rd at the 200m in 20.14
2008 : 1st at the 100m in 9.77
2009 : 1st at the 200m in 19.57
2011 : 1st at the 100m in 9.76
2012 : 1st at the 100m in 9.86

On September, 6 Usain Bolt will not be the only big name on the program in Brussels. Three weeks after the World Championships in Athletics a number of newly crowned World Champions will make their appearance and many other world class athletes will be battling for the honors in the Diamond League Final.
