Bolt does not expect to lower world record this year

MONACO, (Reuters) – Usain Bolt does not expect to  lower his 100 metres world record of 9.58 seconds at the  upcoming world championships.

The world and Olympic champion will run the 100 at the  Diamond League meeting in Monaco on Friday, his last race over  the distance before the Aug 27-Sept. 4 Worlds in Daegu, South  Korea.

“Given my injury and my back problems, I was a little behind  (in my preparations).
Since then, I have tried…to take my time  to get back to my best level,” the Jamaican told a news  conference on Thursday before denying he could break his record  this year.
“Certainly, everyone is waiting for me. But I will apply  myself to win the world championships. The important thing in a  career is to win major championships. The clock does not  matter.”
