Bolt’s time improved on the mark of fellow Jamaican Asafa Powell by .02 seconds.

After false-starting in the final of the 100 of the world championships three weeks ago, Bolt wanted to finish his season on a high note by clocking the fastest time of the season.

Nesta Carter came in second with a time of 9.89 and another Jamaican, Lerone Clarke, had 10.05.
