Bolt wins 200m at Ostrava

Six-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt won the 200 metres race at the Golden Spike meet on Tuesday, as the Jamaican star prepares for the world championships after a season marred by injuries.

Tickets to the Ostrava Golden Spike meet were sold out. Not surprising when you hear the list of names slated to compete, top among them, Usain Bolt.

Facing rain and cold at the IAAF World Challenge event, Bolt came out of the bend slightly ahead and breezed unchallenged to victory, crossing the finish line in 20.13.

Bolt improved on his previous season’s best of 20.20, clocked in April in Jamaica.

It was his first race in Europe this season as he gets into shape for the worlds in August in Beijing.

Isiah Young of the United States finished second in 20.35 and Lykourgos Stefanos Tsakonas of Greece was third in 20.62.
