Rusty Usain Bolt opens track season with 14.74 100m

Usain Bolt got off to a slow start in his first race of the 2010 track season in Daegu, South Korea, running the opening heat of the 100m in 14.74 seconds — 5.16 seconds more than his world record for the distance. "You're always a little rusty to start the season," said Bolt. "Track is like every other sport. I hope to get up to mid-season form soon." The world champion says he has a set practice program in place. "I try to run very fast in the morning," he said. "And then, in my afternoon session, I try to run very fast more." Bolt won his heat in Daegu. No other sprinters cracked 20 seconds.
