The 2011 World 100m Champion Yohan Blake rocked on Saturday night  in the men's 100m proving himself he is in good shape to ran at this year's Rio Olympics. 

The 2-time Olympic silver medalist, Blake, clocked 9.95 seconds, the fastest time this year in the world, to win the men's 100m final at the MVP 100m on Saturday in Kingston, Jamaica. 

Second and third place in the race took Jamaica's Rasheed Dwyer and Great Britains Zarnel Hughes both clocking 10.10. 

“It means a lot to be back in the sub-10 club,” Blake told reporters after the race. “For two years I’ve been out of the sub-10 club, so I thank God, who has been working in my life. It feels good to be back.” Blake added.

Later in the day Yohan Blake returned to track to anchor his team to 4x100m victory in 38.45.

Blake's next three races will be on May 14 in Germany, on June 11 at the Races GP in Jamaica and on June 18 at Adidas Grand Prix in New York.
