The Jamaican world record holder successfully defended his Olympic sprint double gold medals at the London Games last month and he is looking forward to ending on a high.

“This is a fast track. I think it’s going to be a fast time,” Bolt said at his press conference on Thursday.

“My agent pointed out that in the last two races I broke meet records so it would be nice to continue that. I think that would be a good end to the season.”

“Mentally I’m drained (laughs). Yesterday I sat down in my room, I was thinking about what I was going to do at the start of the race, and I was drawing blanks.

“So I know that mentally I’m drained. But hopefully something will come up. I know I’ve got one more run in me.”

Also in action on Friday is Bolt’s training partner and double Olympic silver medallist Yohan Blake, who will race in the men’s 200m.

American Aries Merritt will seek another fast time in the men’s 110m hurdles.
