Bolt wins on return from injury; Harrison breaks 28-yr WR

LONDON (AP) — Usain Bolt marked his return from injury by winning the 200 meters at the London Diamond League meet on Friday in his final race before heading to Rio de Janeiro in search of three more Olympic titles.

The world's fastest man ran 19.89 seconds at the Olympic Stadium he left with three golds four years ago during the London Games. It was Bolt's first race since pulling out of the Jamaican Olympic trials for Rio earlier this month with a hamstring injury.

The six-time Olympic champion said: "I'm not fully in shape. I need more work but over time I will be fine."

Bolt was upstaged at the London meet by Keni Harrison of the United States breaking a 28-year world record in the 100-meters hurdles by running 12.20 seconds.
