Tonight the World’s fastest man Usain Bolt did it again in the mens 200m finals. Bolt failed to set a new record as expected by many, but he did not disappoint his fans. The 100m champion made history by winning gold in the 200m race. Bolt’s rival but good friend Yohan Blake won silver and Warren Weir took bronze, making it a Jamaican 1-2-3. The Jamaican women have also won medals in the London Olympics. Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce won gold in the women’s 100m and silver in the 200m race. Gold medal winner of the 2008 Summer Olympics Veronica Campbell-Brown won bronze in the women’s 100m race, but came fourth in the 200m race. American Allyson Felix took gold medal in the 200m race.
