Bolt opens with 400

Usain Bolt kicked off his sprint season Saturday by making a rare appearance in a 400-meter race and finishing in 46.74 seconds. Bolt, who has back-to-back Olympic gold medals in the 100, 200 and 4x400-meter relays, overtook Allodin Fothergill in the homestretch to win his heat. Bolt’s biggest rival, Yohan Blake, ran 46.64 in a separate heat, finishing second to Warren Weir, the 200-meter Olympic bronze medalist, who finished in 46.23. There were no finals in the small meet, which drew about three dozen sprinters to Kingston’s National Stadium. Bolt, the world-record holder in the 100 and 200, used to run the 200 and 400. – AP
