Bolt Wins Second London Gold In 200m
Usain Bolt has successfully defended his 200m Olympic title and won his second gold medal at London 2012.
The 25-year-old beat compatriot and friend Yohan Blake into second place in a time of 19.32.
And a third Jamaican, Warren Weir, completed a clean sweep for the Caribbean island by taking the bronze medal.
The Olympic champion got off to a blistering start in lane seven, but looked across at Blake several times in the last 50 metres as his rival finished 0.12 seconds behind him.
Bolt becomes the first man ever to to successfully defend both the 100m and 200m titles on a historic night in front of 80,000 spectators at the Olympic Stadium in Stratford.
He also beat Blake into second place in the final of the 100m on Sunday.
After crossing the line, Bolt gave his customary lightning bolt pose before embarking on a lap of honour with Blake and Weir, draped in Jamaican flags. He also posed with fans and took pictures of the crowd and photographers with a camera.
He will attempt to win his sixth Olympic gold medal in the men's 4x100m relay which starts on Friday.
