Blake turns attention to Olympic gold
Yohan Blake says he does not feel under any extra pressure ahead of the Olympics, despite beating Usain Bolt at the Jamaican trials.
The 22-year-old caused a huge stir when beating triple Olympic gold medalist and training partner Bolt to the line in the 100m final at the official trials in Kingston on Friday. Blake also clocked the fastest time in the world this year, 9.75 seconds, when beating Bolt into second - whose time of 9.86 seconds was a personal best and the second-quickest time in 2012. Both sprinters qualify for the Olympics, along with Asafa Powell after he finished third with a time of 9.88 seconds. The race was the first time Bolt and Blake had faced off since Blake won the World Championship in South Korea last year after Bolt had been disqualified for a false start. Despite having beaten the world record holder, Blake seemed to be quite relaxed after the race stating his focus is on winning gold at the Olympics. "No pressure at all. Everything is good. I'm just fortunate," Blake said. "I'm the national champion of Jamaica now, I go into the Olympics like this. "Coach (Glen) Mills told me I can do it and I believed. "The Olympics is the focus right now."
