JAMAICAN sprinter Yohan Blake will compete in Switzerland next week in his first race since beating Usain Bolt over 100 and 200 metres in the Jamaican Olympic trials.
Organisers of the Spitzen Leichtathletik meeting in Lucerne say Blake will run in their 100m race next Tuesday. Meeting director Terry McHugh tells The Associated Press that “it’s his first run after the trials and perhaps his only run” before the London Olympics. Blake, the 100-world champion, clocked a personal best and world’s season-leading time of 9.75 seconds to beat Olympic champion Bolt in Kingston last month.
Blake also clocked a world-leading 19.80 to win the 200. – Nampa/AP
