Less than a week ago we featured a report about Usian Bolt breaking his own 100m record (here). Well, would you believe it, he’s gone and done it again! Except this time he’s broken the 200m World Record!
Check it out:
Berlin, Germany (20 August, 2009) – Three-time Jamaican Olympic gold medallist and PUMA athlete Usain ‘Lightning’ Bolt shattered his own world record and delivered a stunning first place finish in the 200m on Thursday night at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin. Competing on the hottest day on record this year in Germany, Bolt and the track were literally on fire.
The Jamaican sprinter surged ahead of his opponents and raced to victory with an astonishing 19.19 seconds finish. Bolt shattered his own world record last Sunday in the 100m race when he clocked the fastest time ever recorded for that distance in just 9.58 seconds. Previously the world records for the 100m and 200m were set by Bolt exactly one year ago this week at the Summer Olympics in Beijing.
Fastest man in the world
Wearing the now infamous custom-designed Theseus Pro sprint spike, dubbed the PUMA YAAM, after his favorite food, Usain Bolt exploded out of the starting block and powered past the pack, running hard through the end, again cementing his title as the “Fastest Man in the World”.
The vibrant orange color was chosen to contrast Olympic Stadium’s signature blue track. PUMA has also designed an athletic, low-profile version of Usain’s signature track spike, called the PUMA STREET YAAM, which will be available at select retail locations later in the year.

“I am so happy with the race results today,” said Usain Bolt. “Everyone was worried about the heat, but for me this is like running in Jamaica. I feel like I am in the best condition possible and my focus is in the right place. To break both the 100 and 200 meter world records just one year after Beijing is unbelievable and a dream come true.”

Who knows, one day he might even break Herschelle Gibbs’s 200m record he set at one of the Bishops/SACS/Rondebosch triangulars.
