Kingston - Jamaican sprint king Usain Bolt will run his first 100m of the 2016 season next month when he races in the Cayman Invitational Meet, it was announced Tuesday.
The 29-year-old six-time Olympic gold medallist, who is building towards the defence of his titles in Rio de Janeiro in August, will run at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex on May 14 in Grand Cayman.
"I am pleased to announce that I will be competing in the 100m at the Cayman International T&F meeting on May 14," Bolt said in a statement.
Bolt, the world record holder over 100m and 200m, has not raced since last August's World Championships in Beijing, where he was victorious in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay.
"It will be my first international competition in 2016 and my second time to run in Cayman," Bolt added. "I always enjoy competing in the Caribbean and look forward to meeting my fans in Cayman."
The meet will also feature world 400m champion and Olympic 200m gold medallist Allyson Felix and 2011 world 100m champion Carmelita Jeter.
Felix is yet to decide which event she races at the meeting as she builds towards the Olympics and a likely crack at a 200m and 400m double.
Felix has won 21 gold, seven silver and three bronze medals competing internationally for United States. The race will be her first major event of 2016.
