Usain Bolt Breaks 100metres Indoor Record

The six-time Olympic gold medallist, who has
struggled with hamstring issues this year, broke
the 100m indoor record - an event that is rarely
run and does not form part of the World Indoor
Athletics Championships.

Warsaw's national football stadium had its roof
closed for the Kamila Skolimowska Memorial,
which was organised to honour the former Polish
hammer-thrower and Olympic champion, who
died suddenly of a pulmonary embolism at a
training camp in Portugal in 2009 at the age of
26.
Bolt has yet to run sub-10secs in an outdoor
event this year but made a significant statement
ahead of Zurich's Diamond League meeting next
week, overcoming a fairly weak field to win.
The 28-year-old Jamaican broke Frankie
Fredericks' previous 100m indoor mark from
1996.
Bolt won by 0.35secs from compatriot Sheldon
Mitchell, while Trell Kimmons of the United States
stopped the clock at 10.34secs
