Usain Bolt stuck once again in Berlin, adding the 200m word record to his recent 100m world record…and by the same .11 margin. Bolt’s time of 19.19 eclipses the WR he set in Beijing by .11. Bolt commented that his form was going backwards and that maybe next time he should just run the 100 or 200. He noted it wasn’t a good race but a fast one.
After a false start, Bolt got off to a good start and immediately opened up a lead. His nearest competitior, Alosnso Edward, placed second in 19.81 with American Wallace Spearmon third in 19.85.
After one false start, Bolt got off the blocks quickly and opened up an easy, early lead. He had time, towards the end of the race, to appear to check the stadium clock before he crossed the finish line. His nearest competitor was Alonso Edward, who finished with a time of 19.81 while America’s Wallace Spearmon finished third in 19.85.
