He is also the world record holder for the 100m and 200m. Both of Bolt's previous visits to the Golden Gala, which is part of the IAAF Diamond League, were victorious. In 2011 he won the 100m with a time of 9.91 seconds and last year he wowed the crowd by coming home in 9.76. Bolt's 100m world record is 9.58, which hs set when he won gold at the 2009 world championships in Berlin, where he also set a new best of 19.19 in the 200m. The 2013 Golden Gala takes place June 6.
