Jamaican sprint superstar Usain Bolt fired to victory in the 100meter in Ostrava on Wednesday in a modest 10.06 seconds, in what was his first appearance in Europe in his farewell season.
Bolt, winner of eight Olympic and 11 world gold medals, will bring down the curtain on his glittering career at August’s world championships in London.
Meanwhile, sentencing for disgraced former CONCACAF strongman, Jeffrey Webb, has been pushed back yet again, this time until January next year.
The 52-year-old Cayman Islands businessman, a former powerful vice-president of football’s World governing body, FIFA, was expected to be sentenced July 11 but has had the date pushed back to January 24, 2018.
It is the fifth time the US federal court in Brooklyn agreed to reschedule sentencing. Only last April, Webb’s May 11 sentencing was pushed back to July.
He was one of several high level former and current CONCACAF and FIFA officials accused of corruption in a 47-count indictment by the US Department of Justice after being arrested in Zurich, Switzerland two years ago as FIFA executives gathered for presidential elections.
