Lightning Bolt strikes 200m gold in record time

Usain Bolt set a World record of 19.19 seconds on Thursday to add the World championship title in the 200 metres to his gold in the 100m.

Exactly one year after taking gold at the Beijing Games with a record of 19.30, Bolt had an even greater run. Like the record in the 100m on Sunday, he shaved .11 seconds off his previous mark.

Alonso Edward of Panama was second, a massive .62 seconds behind. Wallace Spearmon of the United States took bronze.

“I never expected a World record tonight,” said Bolt. “I was really tired but I told myself I had to just try and do my best - now I am tired. I was too upright. It wasn’t a good race, but it was a fast one.”
