Usain Bolt claimed his second gold medal of the Beijing World Championships on Thursday after winning the 200m final. The Jamaican sprinter managed to fend off competition from the likes of Justin Gatlin to produce a world leading time of 19.57 seconds. During his lengthy post-win celebrations, Bolt’s legs were taken out from underneath him by a rather unfortunate cameraman on a segway scooter.
“They tried to kill me!,” Bolt said afterwards. “I don’t know what’s going on! That guys’s winning too much!”
Bolt’s closest rival Gatlin finished second in a time of 19.74, while Anaso Jobdwana secured bronze with a South African record of 19.87, finishing 0.002 ahead of Alonso Edward. Highly-rated British youngster Zharnel Hughes recorded a personal best of 20.02 to finish fifth.
