Lightning Bolt To Strike In Zürich

Olympics Day 11 - Athletics

Will Usain Bolt send Jamaica rockin' by dropping another world record in Switzerland?

The international community is experiencing sleep deprivation from staying up late nights for the past two weeks watch Olympic coverage while at the same time going through track & field withdrawal from the Olympics.

That all ends very soon.

The ÅF Golden League picks up in Zürich, Switzerland on Friday 29 August. At this point, the race for the $1 Million Golden League Jackpot is two to two: 800-meter Olympic champion Pamela Jelimo and Olympic silver medalist Blanka Vlasic of Croatia.

Olympic medalist will compete in front of sold-out crowd of 26,000 in the venerable Letzigrund Stadium.

Olympic Medalist Heading to Zürich.

The 100-meters will look very similar to Beijing. Will Bolt run through the line this time and shock the world with another world record?

Six runners from Beijing final will step on the track in Zurich: Usain Bolt, Richard Thompson, Walter Dix, Shawn Crawford, and Churandy Martin.

The athletes headling in Zürich include: Blanka Vlasic, Lolo Jones against a field including Olympic champion Dawn Harper, Olympic champion Dayron Robles, new 400-meter Olympic champion LaShawn Merritt, Jeremy Wariner, Angelo Taylor, Yelena Isinbayeva, Jenn Stuczynski, Allyson Felix, and Sanya Richards.
