Bolt Back In UK
The world record holder will take to the track at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London in what will be his final race before the Olympic Games in Rio. Part of the IAAF Diamond League, the London Anniversary Games is one of the best athletics meetings in the world and one of the showpiece events in the British sporting summer. Staged at the Olympic Stadium in Stratford, East London on 22-23 July 2016, the event will provide the final races for many of the world’s best athlete before they head to Rio for the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Bolt said: “I am pleased to announce my return to the Olympic stadium in London for the 2016 Anniversary Games. I know the athletics fans in London are very knowledgeable and passionate about track and field and will come out in force and create a great atmosphere like they always do. I first competed in the London Grand Prix in 2005 when the event was in Crystal Palace, this will be my ninth time to compete in a city I know very well. There are a lot of Jamaicans living in the UK and I always get great support – it is like my home away from home. See you in July.”
