200m UP NEXT

Daegu, September 2 – Usain Bolt returns to action today for the 200 metres. He will run in heat 2 out of lane 7 and will face Caribbean contenders like Emmanuel Calendar (TNT) and Churandy Martina (NED).

Bolt suffered a setback on Day 2 (August 28) when he was disqualified in the final of the 100 metres, where his training partner and countryman, Yohan Blake won the gold medal. Bolt was quoted as saying “I have to move on now as there is no point to dwell on the past.”

Bolt is the Olympic and World Champion for the 200 metres, winning in Beijing and Berlin in 2008 and 2009 respectively.

The semi finals will be run later today (September 2).
