Usain Bolt Breaks 200-Meter World Record At World Championships

Usain Bolt Breaks 200-Meter World Record At World ChampionshipsTotal Pro Sports – Less than one week after breaking the 100-meter world record, Usain Bolt was at it once again on the Berlin race track.  This time he set a new world record in the 200-meter event, running it in an incredible 19.19 seconds (0.11 seconds faster than his previous WR).

Although he did not win by the same margin as female 800-meter world champion Caster Semenya, he was able to cruise to victory over the final 20 meters, even taking a moment to look up at the stadium clock.  It was an amazing display put on by the world’s fastest man.

With each race he runs, Bolt continues to cement his legacy as perhaps the greatest sprinter to ever grace a race track.  He not only defeats his opponents, but he does so with ease in both the 100 and 200 meter distances.  The Olympics are three years away, but if Bolt and American Swimmer Michael Phelps can keep their form, we may be in for another set of outstanding record-breaking performances in London for the 2012 games.

Here is a clip of Bolt’s amazing 200-meter run.
