I have work to do – Bolt … Sprinter clocks 9.98 seconds for Ostrava win

first_imgJamaican sprinter Usain Bolt was certainly not satisfied after his 9.98-second win in the 100m at yesterday’s Golden Spike meet in Ostrava, admitting that he has a lot of work to do to get up to speed. Bolt walked out of the starting blocks before building up some power midway the race and powering to the finish line without company. “The power behind the start wasn’t there. I didn’t execute,” said the Jamaican. “I had to get to work a little bit harder at the end to get up the speed.” “If I can improve that, it should be OK.” Bolt is next scheduled to compete at the Racers Grand Prix in Kingston on June 11, the National Senior Championships and then at the London Diamond League meet on July 22 before the Rio Olympic Games. However, despite posting his first sub-10 clocking of the season, the defending double Olympic sprint champion believes he still has a lot of work to do ahead of the Olympic Games. “This is a very important season. This is a very big year for me,” said Bolt. “I have a lot work to do. I just need to continue, need more races to go.” Ramon Gittens of Barbados finished second in 10.21, with Iran’s Hassan Taftian finishing third in 10.25. Other Jamaican winners included Christine Day and Javon Francis, while Kaliese Spencer had to settle for second place, with Jaheel Hyde falling before the end of his 400m hurdles event. Francis ran a well-paced race for his 400m victory, which arrived in 44.87 – his third straight sub-45 seconds clocking this season. USA’s Tony McQuay, 45.17 was next best with home boy Pavel Maslak, 45.46 finishing third. WOMEN’S 400M Day was commanding in her 51.09 win in the women’s 400m ahead of Carline Muir (Canada), 51.84 and Jessica Beard (USA), 51.88. Kaliese Spencer, 55.43, was out-sprinted by Joanna Linkiewicz (Poland), 55.40 with world champion Zuzana Hejnova (Czech) 55.69 taking third place. Young Hyde fell in his 400m hurdles event after clipping the seventh hurdle as he made his way around the 200m bend very much in the thick of the action with the event eventually going to South African LJ van Zyl, 48.67 with Johnny Dutch (USA), 49.01 finishing second and Patryk Dobek, 49.51 ending in third place. Another highlight came from Olympic champion Renaud Lavillenie, who didn’t meet his 6.00m ambition after clearing 5.83m to win the pole vault, beating World champion Shawnacy Barber, who made 5.70m. Decathlon Olympic and World champion Ashton Eaton withdrew after two jumps in the long jump “During the second jump, I felt something happen in my left quad,” Eaton said. “I don’t know what happened, but I don’t want to take a risk in the Olympic season.”last_img read more

Robert Kibiringo from Nkumba University and Baker Alukoya from Soana FC have both penned two year deals at the club.Kepha Aswani celebrates his goal from the penalty spot against Ushuru during a Kenyan Premier League match in 2016.

Marcelus Ingotsi Lewis Wanami and Harun Nyakha will be loaned out to get playing time, according to Selebwa.Elsewhere, winger Allan Katerega might not return to the club despite re-discovering his form since being loaned out to Kampala City Council Authority in June. Katerega’s form earned him a call up to the Uganda Cranes for the CECAFA Championship where he made his debut against Burundi on Monday.Speaking to Capital Sport, Katerega says he is pleased having improved back in his home town and says he might extend his stay with the Ugandan champions.Uganda Cranes winger Allan Katterega vies for the ball against Burundi’s Laudit mavugo during a CECAFA Senior Challenge clash at the Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega on December 4, 2017.

But you can’t keep that in your heart for long. That is in the past and if I meet him today I will stop and greet him,” Katerega said.On his future; “I am exploring options available now that my contract at AFC has ended. I have improved here because I found a good environment for me and working like the coach wants. Let’s see what the future holds,” said the dreadlocked winger, nicknamed ‘dancing rasta’.He was also pleased making his Uganda Cranes debut and hopes to make the cut even in the senior team.“It was great for me to make my debut. Though we did not win, I feel we played very well and hopefully we can pick up and go on to defend the title,” Katerega said.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
