Usain Bolt insists that breaking his 200m world record is not his priority at tomorrow's Diamond League in Lausanne.

Usain Bolt has said that breaking the 200m world record in tomorrow's Diamond League meeting is not his priority.

The Olympic gold medallist is up against compatriots Warren Weir, Jason Young and Nickel Ashmeade in Lausanne, but insists that getting through the race injury-free is his goal.

"It can be one of those tracks [to break world records], in great shape and in great weather," BBC Sport quotes the Jamaican as saying.

"But I'm just trying to end this season injury-free, because it has been a stressful season for me.

"I am just trying to get through these last three races."

Bolt set the current 200m world record with a time of 19.19s in the 2009 World Championship final in Berlin.
