Usain Bolt World Athletics Championships Schedule 2011

Usain Bolt will be competing in 3 events in this years World Athletics Championships in Daego, South Korea. Should Bolt reach the final in the 100m, 200m and 4 x 100m relay he will most likely have competed in 7 races by the time the Championship ends.

Bolt is exempt from the preliminary round of the 100m, as only athletes put forward by their country without achieving a qualifying time (all countries can enter an athlete in each event) race in this preliminary round.
