I can concentrate on that, and on retiring on a winning note.” Earlier, talking about his 100m heat performance the Jamaican said,” “That was very bad. “I stumbled coming out of the blocks. I’m not very fond of these blocks. I think these are the worst ones I’ve ever experienced. I have to get this start together because I can’t keep doing this. “It’s shaky. When I did my warm-up it (the blocks) pushed back. It is just not what I am used to, not as sturdy or firm.”
