Double again

, August 18, 2013

Usain Bolt of Jamaica celebrates after winning the men's 200 metres final during the IAAF World Athletics Championships at the Luzhniki stadium in Moscow on August 17. Bolt completed yet another sprint double on Saturday as he took his third successive world 200 metres title in the year's fastest time of 19.66 seconds.

Bolt, the world record holder with his 19.19 from Berlin four years ago, won the 100 metres last weekend having completed the sprint double twice at the Olympics and also in the 2009 world championships.

"The 200m is my favourite event so this victory is very important for me. The atmosphere at the stadium was wonderful tonight," he said. Reuters/Dominic Ebenbichler
