 Usain Bolt won the 100m in his season opener at the 2016 Cayman Invitational on Saturday night.

The 6-time Olympic champion took an easy 100m win in 10.05 in his first race of the year. 

At the same meet in 2009 Bolt opened his season in 10.09 and later in the year he went to win 3 gold medals at the  World Championships in Moscow.

“It didn’t feel as smooth, but it was expected (in my first race this year). Just like last season I need more races to get sharp. I am no worries”. Said Bolt.

USA's Kendra Harrison showed high class in the 100m hurdles by claiming the win in a storming 12.42 seconds.

Women's 100m dash won USA's Jenna Prandini in 11.16 seconds (W -0.2). Prandini also won the 200m with a time of 22.63 seconds. 

Kendra Harrison (USA) clocked 12.42 seconds the 3rd fastest time this year in the world in the 100m hurdles.
