Triple Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt has agreed to run in the Golden League track meet in Paris this summer for his first competitive appearance in France.
The Jamaican sprinter will run in either the 100 or 200 meters at the July 17 meet, organizers said on Thursday.
Bolt set world records in both events at the Beijing Olympics and was part of the Jamaican team that broke the world mark in the 4x100 relay.
In addition to Bolt, several members of the Jamaican relay teams are expected to run at the Paris meet, which is the fourth of the six Golden League events this year.
British organizers announced on Wednesday that Bolt will compete in a 150-meter street race in Manchester on May 17.
Bolt is preparing for the world championships in Berlin in August.
