Usain Bolt has unveiled his All-Stars line up for Nitro Athletics Melbourne, announcing a team featuring four other Jamaicans.

Former world 100m record holder Asafa Powell, Michael Frater, along with female sprinters Natasha Morrison and Christine Day will join Bolt as the Jamaicans on the Bolt All Star team.

“Of course I’m going to bring my fellow Jamaicans, they were the first to be picked,” Bolt said.

“The team has so much talent across all the events so I’m expecting us to put on a good show, and win, of course.

Nine Olympic champions are in the squad to take on Australia, England, New Zealand, China and Japan at Melbourne’s Lakeside Stadium over three nights commencing Saturday week, 4th February.

Bolt’s team will also have Rio Olympic Games 400m hurdles champion Kerron Clement and Dawn Harper Nelson, who won the 100m hurdles at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.

“It’s going to be fun, I can’t wait to get down to Melbourne, see the crowd and be part of something that will change the sport of track and field.”
