Blake ‘ready’ for Rio Olympics

Jamaican sprinter Yohan Blake declared himself “fit and ready to run” at this Rio de Janeiro Olympics after clocking a world-leading 9.95 seconds in his first 100 metre race of the season.

The 2011 world champion, dogged by three years of hamstring problems, set the mark less than an hour after American rival Justin Gatlin ran a wind aided 9.90 seconds at the Bahamas Invitational.

Blake had a moderate start in the Jamaican capital before powering away from the field with compatriot Rasheed Dwyer second and Briton Zarnel Hughes third both in a time of 10.10.
