PARIS (AP) — With the world championships in Moscow just more than a month away, Usain Bolt is looking to bolster his confidence and make sure everything is going according to plan.

He'll be running in the 200 meters Saturday at the Areva Meeting, the ninth leg of the Diamond League. Bolt will take on Jamaican compatriots Warren Weir, Nickel Ashmeade and Jason Young, along with former European 200 champion Christophe Lemaitre of France. All five sprinters have run below 20 seconds.

Bolt is the 200 world record-holder and has won the last two world and Olympic titles.

The worlds start Aug. 10.
