Rio de Janeiro: Jamaica's champion sprinter Usain Bolt cruised to victory in a 150-metres race held on Rio's Copacabana beach on Sunday, timing 14.42 seconds.

The 26-year-old Bolt - who won the 100m, 200m, and 4x100m relay in both the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the 2012 London Games, fell short of improving on his own 150m world record - 14.35 seconds in Manchester, England, in 2009.

Antiguan sprinter Daniel Bailey came in second on Sunday at 14.88 seconds, followed by Brazilian Bruno Lins at 14.91 and Ecuadoran Alex Quinonez at 15.90.
