KINGSTON, Jamaica —

Usain Bolt kicked off his sprint season Saturday by making a rare appearance in a 400-meter race and finishing in 46.74 seconds.

Bolt, who has back-to-back Olympic gold medals in the 100, 200, and the 4x100-meter relay, overtook Allodin Fothergill in the homestretch to win his heat.

Bolt's biggest rival, Yohan Blake, ran 46.64 in a separate heat, finishing second to Warren Weir, the 200-meter Olympic bronze medalist, who finished in 46.23.

There were no finals in the small meet, the Camperdown Classic, which drew about three dozen sprinters to Kingston's National Stadium.

Bolt, the world-record holder in the 100 and 200, used to run the 200 and 400. But while getting ready for the 2008 Olympics, he took up the 100 and took a break from the longer distance.
