Jamaica's Usain Bolt won the 100 meters at the Meeting AREVA last night with a time of 9.84 seconds. His countrymen Asafa Powell and Yohan Blake placed second and third, at 9.91 seconds and 9.95 seconds, respectively.
Bolt's footprints are to be installed on StadeFrance Boulevard at the Stade de France, where the meet was held, near those of French soccer star Zinédine Zidane. Inspired by Hollywood's Walk of Fame, StadeFrance Boulevard was inaugurated in November 2008 in celebration of the Stade de France's tenth anniversary.
