Bolt got called out and introduced to a packed house at the Stade de France about an hour and a half before the start of the 100m and the crowd went nuts. Bolt feeds off that energy like it?s oxygen.

Bolt’s friend and PUMA athlete Jermaine Gonzales of Jamaica placed second in the 400m with a time of 44.63.

Great Britain won the 4x100 relay in 38.70 with PUMA athlete Mark Lewis-Francis running the anchor and proving that he's still got wheels.

Two PUMA athletes competed in the men's 3000m steeple. Benjamin Kiplagat of Uganda finished 4th in 8:04.48 and Mustafa “Musse” Mohamed of Sweden finished in 13th place in 8:22.98, his season best.

When Bolt left the warm-up track and headed to the staging area, the crowd immediately started to liven up. When Bolt showed off his new singlet, which looked awesome, the crowd erupted.

Taking lane 4, Bolt recovered from a poor start and managed to stay with the rest of the field before pulling away in the final meters to win in 9.84, a new meet record. Bolt was followed by Asafa Powell in 9.91.

Bolt is now unbeaten in the 100m for 14 consecutive finals.

Big Up to Usain and all the PUMA athletes.
