10 Mins Video Clip: Usain Bolt New 200m World Record 19.19
Usain Bolt breaks 200m world record in time of 19.19sec in Berlin
• Sprinter shaves 0.11 seconds off his own world record
• Bolt breaks second record in a week
Usain Bolt’s extraordinary world championships continued as he broke his own 200m world record, running in a time of 19.19sec that slashed 0.11sec off the time he set in Beijing last year. Earlier this week he ran a time of 9.58sec to break his own 100m world record by exactly the same margin.
“I can definitely say I didn’t expect that because I was a little bit tired,” Bolt said after the race. “I said ‘Let’s try because people are really looking out for this’. I said ‘It won’t hurt to try’. So I tried really hard and now I’m really tired.
“Maybe next time I should just run the 200m or the 100m alone,” he added. “My form was going backwards. I wasn’t running upright. It wasn’t a good race but it was a fast one.”
