Triple Olympic champion and world record holder Usain Bolt will compete in the 100 metres at the New York Diamond League meeting on June 12.
The meeting, the fifth on the new Diamond League circuit, is the first race to be announced for Bolt in 2010.
Bolt, the world record holder at 100 and 200 metres and a member of Jamaica's world record 4x100 relay team, set his first 100 world mark in New York in 2008.
"I am looking forward to returning to the Big Apple in June," said Bolt.
"The track is lightning fast and the fans, well, they sat through an entire thunderstorm in 2008 just to watch the 100 metres so I know they appreciate speed."
