World Boss Bolt

33

Usain Bolt today created more history, becoming the first athlete to win four consecutive 200 meter Word Championship titles.

The 29 year old Jamaican struck Gold in the Bird’s Nest stadium in Beijing, in a world leading 19.55 seconds.

Bolt provided more evidence to support the case that he’s arguably the greatest sportsman ever by decimating a field which included highly touted American, Justin Gatlin to win by approximately 2-meters.

Gatlin had to settle for silver in 19.74 seconds, while South Africa’s Anaso Jobodwana took bronze.

Bolt came into the straight just ahead of Gatlin.

At 120-meters, Gatlin attempted to find another gear.

But a smiling Bolt responded by pulling away and thumping his chest.

The Jamaican sauntered across the line while watching his annihilation of a quality field on the big screen.

Shortly after the race, a Chinese cameraman got too close to Bolt while he celebrated, felling the 6-foot-5 Jamaican.

Speaking to members of the press after his win, Bolt said his celebration was intended to send a message to Gatlin.

He says despite the incident involving the Cameraman he’s alright.

Meanwhile Bolt’s mother, Jennifer, says she’s not surprised by his latest win.

She told IAAFF Radio that her son is the world boss.
