After the 100m titlle and a record last Saturday, the Jamaican champion wins the 200m gold. He finished in 19.30 seconds to break Michael Johnson's 12-year-old untouchable world record of 19.32 seconds. He had become the first person to break both the 100 and 200 world records in the Olympics.The 200 has always been Bolt's favorite. "I've been dreaming of this since I was yea high," Bolt said. "So it means a lot more to me actually than the 100 means.", quote The Associated Press.
