Reigning 100m and 200m Olympic champion Usain Bolt is determined to ensure that London 2012 is the time when he sets himself 'apart from other athletes in the world'.

Bolt, who is also the world record holder in both events, has something to prove after recent losses in the Jamaican trials.

However, the 25-year-old, who false-started in the 2011 World Championship 100m final in Daegu, is full of confidence that he will leave a massive impact in London.

He told The Guardian: "A lot of legends, a lot of people, have come before me, but this is my time.

"This will be the moment and this will be the year, when I set myself apart from other athletes in the world."

Bolt's main competition is expected to come from compatriot and 100m world champion Blake, who beat his training partner in both the 100m and 200m at the Jamaican trials.

However, Bolt believes that Blake might find the added pressure too much to deal with, adding: "It will be a different level of competition for Yohan. It's going to take a lot of focus and it's going to cause a lot of stress.

"It will really test him as an athlete and as a person overall. We'll see how good he is."
