Usain Bolt was beaten in his first race of the 2013 season on Saturday, finishing third in a low-key 400m event in his hometown of Kingston, Jamaica.
The triple gold medallist from both the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympics, who often runs in 400m events at the start of each season to build fitness, easily won his heat in 46.71sec at the Camperdown Classic, but he had to settle for third overall after his team-mates Warren Weir and Yohan Blake both posted faster times in their heats. There was no final for the event.
Bolt i next scheduled to appear in Texas for the National Basketball Association All-Star Game on 15 February before focusing on preparation for August's athletics world championships in Moscow.
