London: In a show of his sprint dominance to sports fans around the world, Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt won the gold medal in the 200 metres here Thursday to claim being "a legend" who has got "nothing left to prove".
Bolt did what he promised he would do. He won the race in a commanding style, getting a flying start and running a fine bend to put him a metre-and-a-half over his only possible rival on the night - Yohan Blake, Xinhua reported.
For a moment, it looked as if Blake would close on the maestro, but it never happened as Bolt found another gear and powered over the line with Blake second and Warren Weir giving Jamaica 1-2-3.
Bolt celebrated with a series of press-ups for the waiting cameramen behind the finishing line. Thursday's win means Bolt has become the only man to win gold in the 100 and 200 metres in successive Olympics....more
