Yohan Blake made his long anticipated return to the track on Saturday (6 June).  He ran 21.57 seconds at the JAAA’s All-Comers Meeting at the National Stadium in Kingston.

"I have to give God thanks I'm back on the track, I was really nervous, but my agent (Cubie Seegobin) and coach (Glen Mills) told me to just go out there and have fun," Blake said after the event.

Zharnel Hughes of Anguilla topped the event in 20.44 ahead of Racers Track Club pair Moguel Francis 20.73 and Terrel Cotton 20.84.

Blake added: "And I don't feel bad as my foot is not bothering me anymore, so it's a really good blow-out for me in my first race back."

"I just wanted to get that first run in the books and although the (head) wind was a bit heavy it was alright and I'll work from there."

"I'm going to run one more 200m next week and going into trials, I just want to do enough to secure an individual spot in the 100m or 200m," said Blake, who is unsure what he will do at Jamaica Trials month end.
