In a post race interview, Usain Bolt said....."Definitely, I have something to prove. I'm the Olympic champion so I have to show the world I am still the best. It's not like I was blown away, I know what I need to do to get it right. I just have to get my stuff together. It's all about putting in the work. I need to figure out what I did wrong and just work on that. I'm a little bit weak but I have a few more weeks to get myself back into shape. I'm not far off, I know I can get it done, I'm not worried. Everyone is talking about Yohan Blake and he is proving himself as one of the greatest, but for me it is just going back to training and work on what I need to work on and get it done. I can never be discouraged. I'm never worried until my coach gets worried and my coach is not worried."
