Usain Wins Gold in the 200 Meters

Posted on August 9, 2012

Usain Bolt did it again: today he won the 200 meters in 19.32 seconds. He is now the first man with two gold medals in the 200 meters. The 25 year old Jamaican sensation is the greatest sprinter in history. Jamaican Yohan Blake, 22, won the silver with a time of 19.44 seconds. Team Jamaica's Warren Weir took the bronze. The U.S. champion Wallace Spearmon, 27, came in fourth place with a time of 19.90. Spearmon was crushed at his loss, but had high praise for the winning team: "They work hard. They got a sweep. Thank you for always supporting me, I appreciate it. I'm going to go ahead and work harder. I'm sorry I let you down." Usain also won the gold in the 100 meters -- the only man ever to pull that off.
