Olympian Usain Bolt has won his first race of the year in Europe at the Golden Spike meet in Ostrava, the Czech Republic.

In wet conditions, Jamaica's six-time Olympic gold medallist clocked 20.13 seconds -- well outside his 19.19 world record -- to beat American Isiah Young, reports the BBC.

Following the win, Bolt said he was building up for the World Championships in Beijing to be held in August.

The Jamaican said that he was well off from where needed to be by the summer.
