Bolt happy with fast start
Usain Bolt insists he is in a better place than last year after opening his 100m season with the fastest time of the year.
The 25-year-old was disqualified from the World Championships for a false start last year and had to contend with two from his main rivals at the Jamaica International Invitational.
However, he was able to put them out of his mind and showed he was the man to beat at this summers Olympics in London by romping home in a time of 9.82seconds.
"A couple of false starts will throw you off, but I stayed focused and went out there and executed as best as possible, so I'm just happy with myself," he said.
"It's a good start, I would say.
"I feel better than last year, so I'm definitely happy with myself. I don't think my execution was perfect, but I think for my first race it was good."
Michael Frater came home second in 10.00 with Lerone Clarke third in 10.03, while Yohan Blake made up for the year's previous best of 9.90 being beaten by setting the 2012 benchmark in the 200m in a time of 19.91seconds.
