Usain Bolt Partners With PokerStars, Puts Kevin Hart On Notice

De Grasse says he has 'great chance' to beat Bolt in August De Grasse optimistic about beating Bolt in August

On Saturday Bolt was determined to put on a spectacle as he won the 100 metre "Salute to a Legend" race in front of a raucous crowd of 30,000 on the same track where he launched his worldwide career in 2002.

Usain Bolt's value to Jamaica over the last decade has gone far beyond just winning medals on the track, the island's leading athletes and politicians said, as the sprint king prepares for his final race on home soil this week.

The eight-times Olympic gold medallist had been out with the 34-year-old Mason before he died in a motorcycle accident in Kingston in April, and was one of the first on the scene after the crash.

He ran in front of a sea of green and yellow clad Jamaican fans who showed their pride by dancing, waving flags and blowing vuvuzela horns while fireworks lit the sky. "I feel like I have a great chance and that's what I want to do", De Grasse said in an interview with The Associated Press ahead of Thursday's Golden Gala Pietro Mennea meet, where the Canadian will run the 200 meters.

De Grasse, 22, said this week he intends to beat Bolt before the world record holder in both 100 and 200m brings down the curtain on his glittering career.

"I'm just going there to do my best and to come through victorious as always". "He is a blessing to not just Jamaica but track and field and the world". "At the start it really took us by surprise and it kind of set me back a bit training-wise, because mentally I wasn't ready to even train for two weeks or two and a half weeks", he said.

"It's Big to see everybody that turned out". I know it will be loud and the energy will be great.

And after his success at London 2012, Bolt insists the decision on where to hang up his spikes was an easy one. "It is my first race and I didn't expect anything spectacular. It shows that they appreciated what I did, and it was a honor for me."? A figure to all of us in his sport and I wish him the best of luck.

Bolt easily topped the field with a time of 10:03.

Simbine ran 10.21 in the 100m and Van Niekerk 19.84 in the 200m in Boston, but those times aren't official as they were run on a temporary track on a street.

Also scheduled to compete will be South African Wayde van Niekerk, who electrified the Rio Olympics with a world record of 43.03 seconds in the 400m.
