ZAGREB, Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- Jamaican superstar Usain Bolt timed in 9.85 seconds to beat the track record in the men's 100m at the athletics meeting here on Tuesday.

Bolt smashed American Tyson Gay's track mark of 9.92 set last year, but was still far away from his world record of 9.58 seconds.

St Kitts and Nevis's Kim Collins, the 2003 world champion and bronze medalist last month, finished second while Trinidad and Tobago's Richard Thompson was third.

Collins timed 10.01 and Thompson finished in 10.03.
