Yohan Blake says that he can compete with anyone in sprints and is ready to run against his Jamaican compatriot Usain Bolt.

Jamaican sprinter Yohan Blake has said that he is ready to compete with his compatriot Usain Bolt.

The 22-year-old finished second behind Bolt in both the 100m and the 200m at the 2012 London Olympics, and aims to improve upon his performances in 2013.

"It's going to be really hard for anybody who comes up against me, because I'll be stronger and I'll be much fitter and much faster," Blake is quoted as saying by Reuters.

"You don't want the clash to get spoilt, but for me, I would run with anybody any day. That's the kind of person I am.

"I don't back down from nothing. I always want to give the people what they want."

Blake and Bolt helped Jamaica win gold in the 4x100m relay at the London Games.
