MOSCOW, Russia:

Usain Bolt says he is looking to break world records and regain his 100m world title here at the IAAF World Championships in Athletics, which runs from August 10-18.




Bolt, who was ejected from the 100m final at the last installment of the championships two years ago in Daegu, after a false start in a race that was eventually won by his training partner Yohan Blake, said he is looking to lower his own world records of 9.58 (100m) and 19.19 (200m), while taking the sprint double here.



"My window for breaking world records are getting smaller ... That (breaking world records) is definitely something I want to do here."



"I think I definitely want to regain my title ..." Bolt added.



Bolt along with 200m Olympic bronze medallist and other members of the Racers Track Club arrived in Moscow on Sunday afternoon to join up with the rest of Jamaica's 44-member team.
