RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil:
London 2012 double sprint silver medal winner Yohan Blake says he's feeling better than ever and underlines that he has no fear for any of his competitors.

Blake, who has regained his form this season after bouncing back from a series of injury setbacks, shared that he has been training well and that it's impossible to be fearful of anyone considering that he trains alongside Usain Bolt.

"God is good, I feel great, I haven't felt this good in a very long time," said Blake, who has not competed at a major championships since the London 2012 Olympic Games where he won silver in the 100m and 200m after finishing behind Bolt.

"Training with Usain Bolt; you're training with the fastest man in the world, so why worry, who else is there? I'm ready (Justin) Gatlin doesn't scare me, no one scares me," Blake assured.

"Anything is possible. I just want to go out there and listen to my coach and execute the race properly and once I do that I won't have any problem," added Blake who has personal best times of 9.69 in the 100m and 19.26 in the 200m.
