Olympic champion and world record holder Usain Bolt won the men's 100 meter dash in 9.98 seconds at the Ostrava Golden Spikes meeting in the Czech Republic.

Bolt continues his season relatively unchallenged by competition, as Friday's field did not include any runners with personal bests under 10.00.

Bolt is now 8–0 in Ostrava having won the 200 meters in 2006, 2008 and 2015 and the 100 meters in 2009, 2011, 2012 and now 2016. He also ran a rare 300 meter race in 2010.

Watch Bolt's win below:


Ashton Eaton, the Olympic decathlon champion and world record holder, did not start the race due to a quad injury that he sustained during the long jump.

Bolt will continue his season at the Racer's Grand Prix in Kingston, Jamaica, on June 11.
