Usain Bolt to run again at Golden Spike in May

PRAGUE (AP) Usain Bolt will compete again at the Golden Spike in the Czech city of Ostrava in May.

Organizers say the Jamaican great will run the 200 meters on May 26 at the meet, which is part of the IAAF world challenge series. They say it will be his only European meet in the first part of the season.

The six-time Olympic champion will race for the seventh time at the meet, and returns after a two-year break.

Bolt says: ''I look forward to the race and coming back to run in the new stadium for the first time.''

Bolt previously said his goal still was to break his own 200 world record of 19.19 seconds he set in 2009.

Bolt has publicly said he will race in the Diamond League meets in New York in June, and in Paris and Lausanne, Switzerland, the next month.
