THUNDER BOLT FOR RUNNING CHAMP
Usain Bolt looked back to his old self as he triumphed in his last ever diamond League 100m.
Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt revved up his form at just the right time ahead of the World Championship.

And it was the first time this season the athletics legend had broken the ten-second barrier.

He might have gone even faster had he got a better start at the Stade Louis II — and if he had bothered to dip at the finishing line.

Exactly two weeks tonight he will bid to defend his world title at London 2017.

Bolt said here two days ago he wants to win gold in style to make amends for the false-start that cost him the world title in Daegu six years ago.

His rivals last night included South African Akani Simbine — who had gone quicker than ten seconds eight times already this year.

Also in the field were Brit CJ Ujah — who ran 9.98 to win the Rabat Diamond League last week — and four others who have dipped below the 10-second marker.

Usain Bolt roared to victory ahead of American Isiah Young, who clocked 9.98secs.

Ujah clocked 10.02 last night to finish fourth with Simbine third in the same time.

American Isiah Young was second in 9.98.
But eight-times Olympic champion Bolt showed up again when it mattered.

And it puts to bed any doubts about his form after a back injury earlier this season.

Bolt is now unbeaten over 100m since 2013 when arch-rival, American drug cheat Gatlin, pipped him to the line at the Rome Diamond League.
