Bolt confirms his status as the greatest track athlete of all time with this decisive 200m victory to double up yet again as world and Olympic 100m / 200m champion. His time of 19.66 is the fastest in the world this season, but it’s clear that he could have knocked several tenths of a second off his clocking if he hadn’t eased up at the end.
But that’s Bolt. He knows when to go hard and when to ease up. With just one more race left in Moscow – anchoring the Jamaican 4x100m relay team tomorrow – his days (and nights) of easing up are not far away.
