The six-time Olympic champion was untested on a makeshift straight track inside a soccer stadium, despite his final being delayed 15 minutes with the hammer throw competition finishing up.

Bolt got a late start to his season due to a foot injury he announced in late March. He told Sport magazine he was tempted to not compete at all this year, adding that he required crutches for the first time in his life after the surgery.

“Constant pain; constant pain,” before the surgery, Bolt told Sport. “I trained through it for a couple of weeks, and it would not go away. I went to see my doctor, and he said: ‘You can treat it, and it’s gonna stop. But then it will come back, so it makes sense to do a surgery.’ So we had to do a surgery.”

He debuted at the Commonwealth Games 4x100m relay as Jamaica’s anchor leg on Aug. 1 and Aug. 2, winning gold in Glasgow, Scotland. Bolt then ran a 100m race on a Brazilian beach last Sunday, winning in a pedestrian 10.06 seconds.

He next races in Zurich on Thursday.
