In his first race this in 2016 Usain Bolt will  run the 100m this Saturday at the Cayman Invitational at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex.

The next stop for Usain Bolt will be on May 20 when he will contest at the Ostrava Golden Spike meeting in Czech Republic on May 20. 

"These upcoming races will determine where I am preparing for Rio," 

"I just have to hope that everything falls into place and when I get back to Jamaica in training, I will know what I need to work on." Bolt Said.
