Anson Henry seventh in Toronto matchup against Usain Bolt...

TORONTO--In the highly anticipated Festival of Excellence 100 meter dash featuring triple Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt from Jamaica, former Washington State University sprinter Anson Henry finished seventh.

Marred by cool temperatures at Varsity Stadium in Toronto, and a false start that resulted in the disqualification of Bolt's fellow countryman Marvin Anderson, the reigning world record holder cruised to the victory in a rather modest 10.00.

Bolt's victory was .25 seconds over his nearest competitor, Olympic 200m silver medalist Shawn Crawford of the USA.

Henry, a Canadian Olympian in 2008, and a world championships semi-finalist at this distance two years ago, ran 10.57.

In the men's one mile run, former Auburn High School standout Chris Lukezic finished sixth in a time of 3:58.31.
