Usain Bolt made an impressive return to the track by running the fastest time in the world this year in the men's 100 meters at the I.A.A.F meeting in Daegu, South Korea.

Bolt looked relaxed before lining up ahead of the men's race and displayed some of the antics that have made him popular with crowds all over the world. But while he seemed happy to clown about ahead of the race he was back to his ruthless best once the starter gun went off.

After a slow first few meters he got into full stride and any thoughts of a possible upset were banished. He started to cruise away from the rest of the field eventually winning by a comfortable margin ahead of fellow Jamaican Michael Frater and Mike Rodgers of the United States in third. Bolt's time of 9.86 seconds might have been two hundredths of a second outside his world record but is still the fastest time of the season to date.

It was a less successful night for Olympic champion Dayron Roubles in the men's 110 metres hurdles.

He produced a lacklustre display losing out to David Oliver of the US, who took bronze behind the Cuban in Beijing.

Carmelita Jeter proved that she's the lady to beat in the women's 100 metres after comfortably seeing off Veronica Campbell Brown. Jeter took control of the event and crossed the finish line in 11.00 seconds on the nose. Campbell-Brown, who closed on the American, was five hundredth of a second behind while Sherone Simpson finished third.
