200m Final – Bolt to Showboat?

Bolt will be hot favourite to make it a golden sprint double at the Olympics Games in Beijing after cruising into the 200m final.

After winning the 100m in a world record 9.69 seconds, he jogged next to rival Shawn Crawford in the last 60m to win his semi-final in 20.09 secs.

I think Bolt should run ‘through’ the line this time without celebrating during his race. You know what they say, ‘pride comes before a fall.’

I would hate to see Bolt trip over because he is trying to watch himself on the big screen while running…

I say go for the record – smash it – set a record that will never be beaten!

Current 200m WR holder, Johnson said “I’m ready to kiss it goodbye … if he keeps on doing what he’s doing.”
