Bolt will compete against French sprinter Christophe Lemaitre in the ninth leg of the Diamond League. It will be the fourth time in five years Bolt has run in the meet, although he missed last year.

He beat Lemaitre at the meet in 2011.

Bolt, the 200 world record-holder, has won the last two world and Olympic titles in the distance.

The worlds in Moscow take place from Aug. 10 to 18.
