In an upset, Jamaican sprinter Yohan Blake finished ahead of Usain Bolt in the final of Jamaica’s Olympic Trials on Friday.

Blake, the current world champion in the 100 metros, ran in 9.75, topping Bolt, who finished in 9.86. Asafa Powell ran the 100 in 9.88 seconds.

All three are headed to the Olympics in London this year.

Bolt, long the favourite ahead of the London Games, could see that position start to change.
