Laussane, Switzerland:

Yohan Blake says his manager will choose when he and Usain Bolt will renew their head-to-head rivalry.

Blake took silver behind Bolt in the 100 and 200 meters at the London Olympics shortly after beating his friend and training partner in both sprints at the Jamaican national championships.

Blake spoke ahead of Thursday's Athletissima meeting where he runs in the 100 and Bolt starts in the 200.

They are also scheduled to avoid racing each other at Diamond League meets in Zurich and Brussels before ending their seasons.

Blake says "I love to race against (Bolt) but I leave that to my manager."

Blake says his manager, Cubie Seegobin, "has chosen some great races for me and I think he knows what he is doing."
