Jamaican star, Usain Bolt, ran his best rest race in recent times as he coasted to victory in the 200m event in convincing fashion on Thursday.
Usain completed the sprint double winning in a time of 19.55secs which is fastest in the world this year ahead of his fiercest rival Justin Gatlin who only could manage a time of 19.74.
Unlike the 100m where Bolt needed to dig deep to beat his American rival, he was way ahead in Thursday’s 200m final.
