Associated Press

Olympic champion Usain Bolt will compete in the Bislett Games for the third straight year when he races in the 200 meters at the Diamond League event.

The Bislett Games on June 13 in Oslo, Norway is the sixth of 14 Diamond League meets this year. Bolt won the 100 last year and won the 200 the previous year.

Bolt said Wednesday, "I have many good memories from this great city and from the Bislett Stadium."

Bolt, who won gold medals in the 100 and 200 meters at last summer's Olympic Games in London and also won the 4x100 relay, says he aims to repeat the triple feat at the worlds in August. He sees the Bislett Games as "an important stepping stone towards that goal."
