Video of Usain Bolt VS Christophe Lemaitre 200m Diamond League Paris 2011

>> July 09, 2011

Usain Bolt obviously has problem. A few weeks before he set the World record 19.19s in 2009, he ran 19.59s in the rain. Did you expect he is in 19.5 or 19.6 shape at the moment so he can run 19.1 or 19.2 in Daegu World championships?. Luckily for Bolt the American Tyson Gay is no longer relevant with the 2011 World championships. He won the IAAF Diamond League in Paris on July 08, 2011 with a less favorable time of 20.03s (-0.6). And it's not a comfortable wins as Christophe Lemaitre came very close in second in 20.21s. Darvis Patton was third in 20.59s.

No one ever got close to Bolt in 200m since he set 19.30s in Beijing 2008, but not as expected Lemaitre did. Not a great time for Bolt but he seems to retain his titles soon in Daegu, since Tyson Gay is out of the World championships.

If viewed from the consistency and timing, there is no reason for Lemaitre NOT running the 100m at the World champs as he is clearly better in 100m rather than 200m, but to be safe, take part in both 100m and 200m. Below is the video:
