Stadium Record & World Lead in Paris

6th July 2013 – On his third visit to the Meeting Areva in Paris Usain came away with a 200m stadium record and world leading time of 19.73 secs.  The Jamaican made it a Paris triple as he ran away from training partner Warren Weir and local hero Christoph Lemaitre.

‘Personally I think I should have run quicker,’ he said. ‘But it’s enough to win races against a tough field. This is one of the best fields [in the world], subtracting Tyson Gay. 

‘I should have done better, but the positive thing is I know what to work on. It’s all positive, really.’
