Jamaican sprint superstar Usain Bolt's final race before the London Olympic Games will be over 200 meters at the Monaco Diamond League Meeting on July 20.

Bolt who opens his outdoor season at the Jamaica Invitational on May 5, will race the 100 meters at the Diamond League Meetings in Rome on May 31 and Oslo on June 7.

He will also turn out over the shorter distance at the Ostrava Meet on May 25.

Bolt is the favourite to retain his Olympic titles in the 100 and 200 meters but is expected to face tough competition from countryman Yohan Blake who became the youngest 100 meters world champion in history at last year’s World Games in Daegu.
