Bolt not in mood to smash new records

Usain Bolt

Usain Bolt is adamant that this season will be a low-key one for him even if Tyson Gay and others pursue their ambitions of not only beating him but trying to break his world sprint records.

Bolt coasted to an easy success against a makeshift field to win over 200 metres at the Shanghai IAAF Diamond League meeting just four days after posting the world's fastest 100m time of 9.86 seconds in Daegu, South Korea.

In his debut on the newly-created global circuit, the 23-year-old Jamaican produced a world-class mark of 19.76secs.

“It was a good run, the feeling was good but it was not easy,” said Bolt.

“This year I'm not going to chase any records. I said it doesn't matter if I get beaten this season.”
