Bolt wins final 100 meters race on home soil

"The last time in front of my home crowd". "I'm home, the amount of people that called me to get tickets (he laughs), I know the stadium's gonna be full, so I know it's gonna be high energy".

But it's going to be all about Bolt as he says goodbye to his adoring local fans before he begins his final journey to his swansong at the world championships in London in August.

Meanwhile, Olympic champion and 400m world record holder Van Niekerk will take on Rasheed Dwyer, Nigel Ellis, Zharnel Hughes and Warren Weir in the men's 200m. He says 2017 is about beating his rivals but not about breaking his world records.

"PokerStars is a victor and I'm happy to join Kevin in helping to bring poker and PokerStars to the masses", said Bolt, via a press statement.

Bolt and Rudisha will share the spotlight with a decorated group of athletes including two other world record holders at the meet dubbed a "salute to the legend".

"He ends his competitive career this year, but he does not end the image, and the legacy of course, that Usain will leave".

Bolt, who comes from the isolated rugged mountain village of Sherwood Content, described himself as a "legend" and most track fans would agree with that description.

Andre De Grasse isnt interested in taking over from Usain Bolt as the worlds best sprinter when the eight-time Olympic champion retires later this year.


"Peaking at the right time is credit to my coach".

"I feel like I have a great chance in both events - 100 or 200", De Grasse said. "I always go out there and give my all".

“I never really had any track fanatics growing up that I idolised.”. "I will do charity work and I know I talked about playing football, so we will see".

Jamaica is considered the sprint capital of the world over successive Olympics and World Championships and the National Stadium is the venue where Bolt launched his global career, competing and winning as a 15-year old at the World Junior Games in 2002.

"We realise we might not see it again", said Farah who will be competing tomorrow in the 3,000m. We are looking forward to see his final year and support him all the way for what he has done for us as athletes and the way he has inspired us.

"We are here to honour Usain and what he done for the sport".

Wayde van Niekerk and Akani Simbine try to get comfortable after training in Jamaica, while Van Niekerk's coach Ans Botha holds on to a hurdle. "Bolt is a big target for me", he added.
