Are You Kidding? Bolt Breaks His Own World Record in 200M

This dude is just silly...


Jamaica's Usain Bolt continues to defy logic on what seems like a daily basis. From ESPN:

BERLIN -- Usain Bolt has set a world record of 19.19 seconds in the 200 meters at the world championships, adding to the gold he won in the 100.

Exactly one year after taking gold at the Beijing Games with a record of 19.30, Bolt had an even greater run Thursday. He shaved 0.11 seconds off his previous mark, as he did in setting the record in the 100 on Sunday.

19.19 seconds. The Buzz remembers when Michael Johnson's 19.32 seemed other-worldy. Good grief.
