Bolt to run in Brussels meet on Sept. 6
MONACO -- Usain Bolt will run in the Diamond League meet in Brussels on Sept. 6, three weeks after the world championships in Moscow.
The IAAF says the Jamaican sprinter will decide later in the year whether to race the 100 or 200 meters in Brussels.
It will be Bolt's sixth appearance in the Belgian capital. He clocked 9.77 seconds in the 100 into a stiff headwind in 2008 and smashed the meet record the next year in the 200 in 19.57.
Bolt is also expected to run the 100 in Rome on June 6, the 200 in Oslo on June 13, the 4x100 relay in Ostrava, Czech Republic, on June 27 and the 200 in Paris on July 6. The world championships will be held Aug. 10-18.
