Bolt To Race Rarely Contested 300m In Ostrava

Michael Johnson’s world record will be in jeopardy.

Jamaican superstar Usain Bolt has confirmed he will race the seldom contested 300m distance at the Golden Spike meeting in Ostrava this May. Bolt has never raced over that distance but says he does workout over 300m often.

Bolt will certainly have his eyes on the world record of 30.85 set by American Michael Johnson in 2000. Bolt proved he could run over 200m succesfully this Spring when he anchored a 4X400m relay team in a blistering 43.58 at the Gibson Relays in Kingston, Jamaica.
