Usain Bolt Wins Gold in 200 Metres Final in Beijing


Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt proved too strong for Justin Gatlin when he comfortably won 200-meter title at the track and field world championships Thursday in Beijing.

Bolt ran the fastest time of the year in 19.55 seconds to win a record fourth straight world 200 metres title.

The in-form Justin Gatlin finished second in 19.74 while Anasco Jobodwana took bronze in 19.87 for South Africa ahead of Panama’s Alonso Edward.

Bolt now remains the greatest sprinter ever, unless someone better is born to challenge him both in 100 and 200 metres races.
