Usain Bolt wins 100 at Golden Spike in 9.98

Usain Bolt used his strong finish to win the 100 meters in 9.98 seconds at the Golden Spike meet.

Bolt recovered from a slow start but pulled ahead in the second half of the race to breeze unchallenged to the victory. 

Christine Day of Jamaica took the women's 400 in 51.09 seconds, well ahead of Carline Muir of Canada who clocked 51.84 seconds while Jessica Beard of the United States had 51.88 secondsin third.

Sprint king Usain Bolt ramped up his preparations for the Rio Olympics by running a sub-10 second time in the 100 metres at the Ostrava Golden Spike meeting.

The Jamaican, making his second start this season and running in front of his parents, faced little competition in his annual trip to the Czech event as he ran 9.98 to finish 0.23 ahead of Ramon Gittens of Barbados.

As he approaches the end of his Olympic career, Bolt is aiming for an unprecedented 'threepeat' at the Rio Games in August where he will defend his 100, 200 and 4x100 relay titles.
