Yohan Blake enjoys new world champion status

Yohan Blake enjoys new world champion status

Yohan Blake is enjoying the extra attention that comes with being 100 meters world champion and main attraction at the Weltklasse meeting on Thursday.
Because Blake's training partner Usain Bolt skips the Diamond League finals event in Zurich, he has center stage for his first race since they helped Jamaica set a new 4x100 relay world record in Daegu, South Korea.
Blake tells reporters at a news conference that "anybody would kill to be in my position, I guess."
The 21-year-old sprinter says "my ranking is No. 1 so I want to keep it that way. It's a wonderful feeling but I know it's not going to be easy."
Blake will race former world record-holder Asafa Powell and his relay teammates Nesta Carter and Michael Frater.
