Eight New Zealand athletes will take part in a coaching clinic with the world's fastest man, Usain Bolt, in Auckland on Monday.

Bolt will be in Auckland for less than 24 hours as part of promotional activity for Gatorade and will also train with the Breakers basketball team.

Joshua Hawkins (110m hurdles), Joseph Millar (100m, 200m), Dalton Coppins (200m), Rochelle Coster (100m hurdles), Molly Florence (100m), Kristie Baillie (400m, 200m), Stella Pearless (800m, 400m) will get tips from Bolt at the AUT Millennium on Auckland's North Shore.

"We want to thank Gatorade for bringing Usain Bolt to New Zealand," Athletics New Zealand chief executive Scott Newman said. "It's rare to have the chance to get close to such a world-class athlete and all those involved will benefit greatly from the experience."
