Usain Bolt won 200-Metre Sprint at the World Athletics Championship in Moscow

Aug 18, 2013 11:22 IST

Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt won the 200-metre sprint at the World Athletics Championships in Moscow on 17 August 2013. This was his third successive 200 metre world title. It was also his 7th world gold medal. Bolt's compatriot Warren Weir clinched silver with a personal best 19.79 while America's Curtis Mitchell (20.04) took bronze by a hundredth of a second.

Bolt now has the opportunity to draw level with the present mark of eight world gold medals won by retired American duo Carl Lewis and Michael Johnson when he races the 4x100m relay on 18 August 2013.

American Tyson Gay was absent in this race because of suspension while Bolt’s Jamaican compatriot Yohan Blake was injured.
