Hampered by injury for much of last season, Usain Bolt has committed to run the 100 meters at a July meet in Paris.

The six-time Olympic champion and world-record holder in the 100 and 200 holds the Meeting Areva record and has never lost at that competition.

Bolt has yet to solidify his 2015 schedule but is expected to run more frequently in preparation for the world championships in Beijing in late August.

Earlier this week, his Facebook page included photographs of him training with the caption: “Good day at the office.”


The Areva Meeting will take place at Stade de France on July 4.
