The Adidas Grand Prix is sixth meeting of the 2014 I-DOUBLE-A-F Diamond League season. Blake is down to the men’s 100 metres, which begins at 6:35 this evening Jamaica time.
The field also includes to contest two other Jamaicans – Kemar Bailey Cole and Nesta Carter. With strong support from the Caribbean community here, there is no doubt that Jamaican sprinters Nesta Carter, Yohan Blake and Warren Weir will enjoy their surroundings at Icahn Stadium.
Blake would not discuss a target time for the race, saying that he, “preferred to let his running speak for itself.” He is, however, looking forward to giving the crowd something to cheer for.
“Sometimes I shut out the crowd just to focus but sometimes you can’t help but to hear it in the background,” commented Blake.
“I think the Jamaican fans will be really good for getting the adrenaline pumping in the body, which is when you tend to do great things.”
