Jamaican sprint legend Usain Bolt returned to action last night in the Diamond League meeting in Lausanne and strolled his way through the 200m in a winning time of 19.58 seconds. Nobody got close to Usain who seemed to jog the second 100m after finding himself way out in front after the bend.
Bolt explained, "It's a good run, it's the end of season so I'm having some fun." Meanwhile, Usain Bolt’s countryman and training partner Yohan Blake won the 100m with a winning time of 9.69 seconds, the joint third fastest time in history.
Yohan was delighted with the run and stated, "I have been sick all week, thank God I recovered. I have more races and I'm going to get better and better." He added, "I would run with Usain any day, he's my training partner. I would love to run with him, but they have to put up big money."
Bolt praised his training partner admitting that he was expecting a fast time, he said, "I could tell Yohan would run fast, I've seen him in training," Bolt, 26, said. "I predicted 9.72, but he went a little bit faster."
