Usain Bolt won the 200 meters World Championship title in Moscow, in a relatively slow time — 19.66 seconds. He actually ran a pretty good race, and started slowing down 50 meters from the finishing line as Warren Weir manage to reduce the gap between them to just 0.13 seconds. It was Bolt’s third consecutive World 200m title.
Usain Bolt takes the 100 meters crown in 9.77 seconds in Moscow
Okay, so Usain Bolt won the 100m final again in the World Championships 2013 in Moscow. He ran the distance in 9.77s. As you can judge from this post, posted minutes before the start of the race, I was expecting big things from the Jamaican. For example, a sub 9.70s, if not a sub 9.60s, run. Little did I know about the rain, which literally single-handedly ruined the pace of the sprinting event, with only 2 men running under 9.90 seconds.
Usain Bolt coming back shortly to his business
Whoooo! Usain Bolt just came to the track in Moscow in World Athletics Championships 2013 to compete for the final of Mens’ 100m sprint, having run a 9.92 seconds in his semi-final. With a 9.85 seconds season-best performance, he clearly doesn’t look as fast as he did when he broke the world record with his 9.58 seconds run back in 2009 in Berlin. Then again, he’s Usain Bolt. I can’t predict a single thing except that he’ll win the race tonight. Maybe a new world record on its way… 😉
