Jamaica’s world record holder Usain Bolt has signed up to compete at a major international athletic meeting in Malmo, Sweden on August 19, 2014.


The meet represents the first major athletic meeting in Sweden in many years.

Bolt says it is unusual for him to commit to a meet so far ahead, but he enjoys supporting new meets.

The six-time Olympic gold medallist says he is looking forward to be a part of the Malmo meet.

Bolt says he will confirm which event he will run at a later date.
