Article source: Athletics

Former world 100m champion, Yohan Blake, returned to sprinting  in front of nearly 10.000 fans with a win over 150m (14.71sec) at the Great City Games in Manchester on Saturday, May 17.

Happy Yohan Blake, who missed almost full 2013 due to a hamstring injury said he could have run faster.

 "I feel I could have got that record but I had to make sure I came away injury-free. I don't want to use that as an excuse but I can't warm up on asphalt because it hurts my feet." Blake told  theguardian.com after the race.

Blake left his compatriot Kemar Bailey-Cole in second 15.00sec. and  Chris Brown of Bahamas in third 15.10sec. 

Jamaican's winning timeof 14.71sec is the third-fastest 150m time in history on a straight course, behind  Usain Bolt and the American Walter Dix.
