Meeting Record in Weltklasse Zurich – 19.66 secs
Usain Bolt won by a wide margin in the 200 metres at the Zurich Diamond League Meeting on Thursday clocking 19.66 for another meeting record. Fresh from his win over the same distance in Lausanne a week ago, Bolt lead a Jamaican sweep for the top four positions.
Bolt lead from the start in wet and chilly conditions and was only running his second 200 metres in this series. Bolt was second overall in the standings for the Diamond.
Nickel Ashmeade (who has a wild card entry to next year’s World Championships), Jason Young and Warren Weir, completed the sweep for Jamaica.
Bolt will end his season with the 100 metres at the Brussels Meeting, scheduled for September 7.
