Last week, after Millrose, I asked a couple of keen observers of the sport what they had to do to improve our sport. One said it best, “Want Millrose and the other meets to sell out?” Get Usain Bolt, Tyson Gay, Sanya Richards, Jeremy Wariner, LaShawn Merritt and our other stars to be there. Build the meets around them. If they can not compete, have them signing autographs for three hours…”

Bolt to run 400 m on February 13, first DL announced: 100 m in NYC
KINGSTON (JAM): WorldÂ´s most popular athlete Usain Bolt will open his competition year on February 13 in Kingston. He will run as part of his usual winter preparation for summer the 400 m. Also in 2009 he started in the similar way at Camperdown Meet with 46.35 time. His best at the distance from 2007 is 45.28. For the moment Bolt is contracted to run seven IAAF Diamond League meetings in summer. First announced by today is the 100 m at adidas Grand Prix in New York City on June 12. It will be his competitive return to US after 9.72 world record in 2008. â€œNew York was the site of my first world record, the track is lightning fast and the fans, well, they sat through an entire thunderstorm in 2008 just to watch the 100m so I know they appreciate speed,â€ said Bolt. â€œI am looking forward to returning to the Big Apple in June,â€ he was quoted by IAAF. With no global championships on the programme the main goal for the fast Jamaican is to remain unbeaten and concentrate mainly on the new meetings circuit. On his twitter Usain Bolt wrote on January 21: â€œSome crazy 300 m today, resting up.â€
