Usain Bolt has admitted he needs to “get his start together” after coming back from yet another poor start to qualify for the semi finals of the men’s 100m with 10.07s at the IAAF World Championships London 2017.
“That was very bad, I stumbled coming out of the blocks. I’m not very fond of these blocks. I think these are the worst ones I’ve ever experienced. I have to get this start together because I can’t keep doing this,” he said.
The Jamaican eventually caught up with the rest of the field and took first place in 10.07s ahead of Great Britain’s James Dasaolu with 10.13s and France’s Jimmy Vicaut in 10.15s.
He added, “It’s shaky. When I did my warm up it pushed back. It is just not what I am used to. Not as sturdy or firm.”
Bolt however loved the reception from the capacity crowd at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium.
“The crowd is always wonderful. They always show me so much love and I always appreciate being here. I’m excited about getting through to that final and doing my job to my best,” he summed up.
