Bolt cruises into 200m Semi Final
(Reuters) – A chastened Usain Bolt returned to the world championships and Deagu Stadium on Friday morning resolutely focused on just one thing, reaching the semi-finals of the 200 meters.
The flamboyant fastest man in the world could be forgiven for not taking absolutely anything for granted after the embarrassment of being disqualified from the final of the 100 meters for a false start five days ago.
There was no way he was going to jump the gun again and understandably had the slowest reaction time in his heat but the Jamaican rarely needs a perfect start in the 200 and he duly eased to victory in 20.30 seconds.
That turned out to be the quickest time of the morning but pretenders to Bolt’s crown like American Walter Dix, Panama’s Alonso Edward and flying Frenchman Christophe Lemaitre also proceeded comfortably.
