ROME, March 19 (Xinhua) -- Jamaican star sprinter Usain Bolt will run the 100-meter race at Rome's Golden Gala, the fifth leg of the Diamond League, on June 6, 2013, organizers confirmed on Tuesday.
It will be the third time in a row for the back-to-back Olympic champion in the 100m, 200m, and 4x100m to compete in the 100m event in the tournament.
The Jamaican clocked 9.91 seconds in 2011 and then set a new meet record of 9.76 last year.
"We are happy that Usain Bolt will be in Rome again," said Alfio Giomi, president both of the Italian Athletics Federation and the organizing committee. "From my point of view, I wish that the high international value of the Golden Gala may be reached this year with a strong contribution of the best Italian athletes."
