Bolt to run in the Golden Spike in June

PRAGUE, Czech Republic, CMC- Usain Bolt has confirmed his intention to compete again at the Golden Spike in Ostrava in June, organizers have said.

However the Jamaican great says he is still undecided whether to run the 100 or 200 metres on June 17.

Bolt said earlier that his goal for this year was to break his own 200m, world record of 19.19 seconds.

“Ostrava is a fast track when the weather is good,” Bolt said.

“I look forward to good weather and good performances in 2014”.

The six-time Olympic champion will race for the seventh time at the meet, part of the IAAF World Challenge Series.
