DAEGU, South Korea -- Usain Bolt won the 100 meters in 9.86 seconds Wednesday in his season debut at the Daegu meet.

The time was 0.28 seconds off the world record of 9.58 he set at last year's world championships in Berlin. He shaved 0.08 seconds off Tyson Gay's 2009 meet record of 9.94.

Jamaican countryman Michael Frater was second in 10.15.

"That race was really wonderful," Bolt told South Korean television network MBC. "I really loved it, and I'm looking forward to next year because it was full of energy."

Bolt, who also holds the world record in the 200, expects to return to Daegu Stadium for the 2011 world championships.

"There is a high possibility of me setting a new world record next year," Bolt said.

He skipped the opening Diamond League meet last week in Doha, Qatar, but has entered the meet Sunday in Shanghai.

Carmelita Jeter of the United States won the women's 100 in 11.00, followed by Beijing Olympic gold medalist Veronica Campbell-Brown of Jamaica in 11.05. Sherone Simpson of Jamaica was third in 11.26.

Ryan Bailey of the United States won the 200 in 20.58, and two-time Olympic champion Angelo Taylor won the 400 with 45.21.

American Bianca Knight won the 200 in 22.92.

The meet, broadcast live in 3-D, was watched by Seoul citizens on large television screens in city center plazas.
