Jamaican triple Olympic champion Usain Bolt is off and running for 2012. He opened his new season with a sizzling anchor leg as his Racers Track Club logged a world-leading time of 37.82 seconds in a 4x100 metres relay on Saturday.

Bolt delayed his season opener twice, for undisclosed reasons, in February. But he looked smooth as he outpaced compatriot and former 100 metres world record holder Asafa Powell to win by 10 metres in cool, wet conditions at the University of Technology Classic meet.

Bolt’s team of Mario Forsythe, Yohan Blake and Kimmari Roach gave him a three-metre lead before he added to the distance against Powell of the rival MVP Track Club team, which crossed the line in 38.27. Bolt did not run in the 100-metre sprint, which his relay teammate Blake won with a time of 9.90 seconds.
