Daegu, September 2 – Usain Bolt returned to the track on Friday, September 2 in the 200 metres to clock an easy 20.30 seconds in winning heat 2 of 7 in the 200 metres.

Bolt came off the curve quicker than his competitors and with just about 40 metres to go, shut down and cruised past the finish line.

Bolt has the semi finals later today and will hope to defend his title in the finals to be held on Saturday. The world record is 19.19 set in Berlin in 2009.
