Usain Bolt Runs 19.32 In 200m Final, Repeats As Gold Medalist, Still Eased Up At The End

Usain Bolt made history today as the first man to ever repeat as Olympic champion at 200 meters, running a 19.32 despite clearly easing up on the final strides.

He eased up so much, in fact, that countryman Yohan Blake nearly caught him at 19.44. Fellow Jamaican Warren Weir rounded out the medals with a 19.84, making for the fastest top three times in Olympic history. American Wallace Spearmon came in fourth at 19.90. [BBC]
