Usain Bolt will run at the season-ending Memorial Van Damme Diamond League meeting on Sept. 11.

Bolt, the world record-holder in the 100 and 200 meters, will decide after the world championships in Beijing in August which event he will contest in Brussels.

It will be Bolt's seventh appearance in Brussels, where he has posted five wins - four in the 100 and one in the 200 - since a third-place finish in the 200 in 2007. Bolt holds the meet record of 9.76 in the 100, set in 2011.
