Blake is returning to race the 200m at King Baudouin Stadium, one year after stunning everyone, Bolt included, by running the second-fastest time in history.

Blake says he is fit and eager to beat the 19.26 seconds he ran last year and the fickle weather should cooperate, with balmy temperatures and clear skies predicted in what would be perfect conditions for sprinting.

After beating Blake into second place in the 100 and 200 at the London Games, three-time Olympic champion Bolt will surely take center stage again in the 100.
