USAIN BOLT CLOCKS WORLD LEADING 19.79 OVER 200M AT THE OSLO DIAMOND LEAGUE MEET!

 

KINGSTON, Jamaica — Usain Bolt confirmed his dominance over the 200m at the Oslo Diamond League meet with a workmanlike performance Thursday, clocking a meet record and world leading 19.79 seconds.

Competing against a mediocre field the Jamaican led from the start and ran a strong curve but it was in the final 100 metres of the race that he pulled away in what turned out to be an easy win.

Jaysuma Saidy Ndure of Norway was second (20.36) while James Ellington of Britain took third (20.55) after Chiranda Martina was disqualified on a false start.

Bolt leads the world list as two other Jamaicans, Nickel Ashmeade (20.00) and Warren Weir (20.11) complete the top three performances this season.

The repeat triple Olympic champion will next compete at Jamaica’s senior National Trial next weekend.
