Jamaica's Usain Bolt, right, competes to win the Men's 100 Meter event during the Diamond League athletics meeting in Rome on May 31, 2012.

The Associated Press reports"My drive was better and I started well," Usain Bolt said after setting a season's-best time. "The transition was also better. After Ostrava [where he ran a relatively slow 10.04 last week] a lot of people questioned me, but I never questioned myself."

The fastest runner in the world happens to train with his stiffest competition, who also happens to be his friend and teammate. Usain Bolt of Jamaica will compete against fellow countryman Yohan Blake at the 2012 Olympics in London this summer. NBC's Lester Holt traveled to Bolt's homeland to meet the king of the track.
