Usain Bolt: I’m not rusty and I’m ready to prove it in Ostrava

Ostrava, Czech Republic (Sporting Alert) — Usain Bolt says the jitters are now behind him and he is now ready to fully get his season on the way in his regular confident fashion.

The Jamaican world record holder opened his season with a 9.91seconds victory at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Rome last week, but admits to being nervous in his first race of the season.

Bolt, who had to dig deep into his reserves to catch fellow countryman Asafa Powell with a late surge in the closing metres in Rome, admits that his overall race performance was dreadful in the Italian capital and he is ready to deliver a better performance.

“Everything that was bad happened there,” the Jamaican speedster admitted during an interview.

“I was only going through the motions. The only good thing to come out of it was that I didn’t lose.”

Before Rome, Bolt had not run in almost ten months after cutting his season short last year with an injury after a defeat to American Tyson Gay.

And despite looking rusty in his last race, the Jamaican dismissed remarks that he is not ready to run.

“My coach [Glen Mills] won’t send me to the track unless I’m ready to run,” and the trip to Sweden abruptly ended Bolt’s 2010 season.

“Last year was my season off [with no global championships], and because it was so long between competitions, I really got nervous last week,” Bolt explained.

“I hadn’t been that nervous in three or four years.”

In Ostrava Bolt will face countryman and world-leader at 9.89, Steve Mullings, as well as training partner Daniel Bailey of Antigua, Kim Collins of St Kitts and Nevis and Ivory Williams of the USA.
