British Athletics will host the Sainsbury’s Anniversary Games, at the infamous Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Celebrating a year since the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games, 12 Olympians have been announced ahead of the three day event taking place 26-28th July 2013.
Usain Bolt is running the 100m sprint, and also competing in the 4 x 100m event on Saturday afternoon. It has been four years since he last competed in the Moscow IAAF World Championships and said of the event:
