Usain Bolt Beaten
Usain Bolt the Jamaican Olympic sprint champion, was beaten in the first race of the 2013 season.
He finished in third place in the 400 meter event at the Camperdown Classic in his hometown of Kingston, Jamaica.
The triple gold medallist from both the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympics easily won his heat in 46.71 seconds at the Camperdown Classic, but this time Usain Bolt was beaten by two people he knows pretty well, his training partners Warren Weir and Yohan Blake.
Next week, he is scheduled to appear in Texas for the National Basketball Association All-Star Game but his major goal this year is the world championships in Moscow.
