Usain ”the lightning” Bolt made it! Four times gold medal on 200m at World Champs, title take as easy as only a jamaica can do.
When the silence occupied the Bird’s Nest in Beijing, every one knew would have not gave less than 100%.
At the shot both the competitos started really fast. The gold have been assigned in the last part of the curve, where wonderful Bolt changed pace and sprinted away from Gatlin, who could do nothing but see the jamaican t-shirt from the back.
Just like seven years ago, when Bolt won the gold on 100m with the World Record turning his chest towards the crowd and cheering before the finish line, today the king could started celebrating way before the line, stopping pushing with a smile on the lips.
19”55 against Gatlin’s 19”74.
The kingdom is not finished yet, and King Bolt has no intention of abdicating.
Next step the 4x100m relay, Usain still miss a piece for the collection.
