From the Washington Post: March 17 - Usain Bolt will compete in the rarely contested 300-meter race at the Czech Golden Spike meet in May. Organizers said today that Bolt will attempt to break the world mark in the distance on May 27 in Ostrava. Michael Johnson holds the current mark of 30.85 seconds. The IAAF does not recognize it as a world record, as the distance is not used at major events. Bolt will receive $30,000 if he sets a world best in the 300.
