Usain Bolt 200m 19.40s (Video) - Daegu 2011

>> September 03, 2011

As anticipated, Jamaican great Usain Bolt successfully defended his world title of 200m during the IAAF world championships in Daegu. He clocked a time of 19.40s (with moderate tailwinds +0.8) which is the fastest time in the world this year. Silver medal went to American Walter Dix who set 19.70s, just outside of his best 19.69s. Frenchman Christophe Lemaitre, the 100m finalist who is regarded as the first white man to break the 10s barrier took the bronze in 19.80, an improvement of French record by 0.36s.

U.S based sprinter Jayasuma Saidy of Norway who coached by John Smith in fourth despite of clocking below 20s (19.95 SB), some off his PB 19.89s. Young Panamanian Alonso Edward who has a personal best of 19.81s, however injured at curve and out of the race.

Bolt's time is damn outstanding considering the fact that it's the 4th fastest time ever recorded by human - behind 19.19 &19.30 (by Usain Bolt) and 19.32 (by Michael Johnson).
