Usain Bolt 200m Finish Line Photos: History Made at London 2012
Usain Bolt Defends 200m Title: Photos
Usain Bolt has made Olympic history, becoming the first athlete to defend a Gold Medal in the 200m. (Video: Usain Bolt 200m at London 2012)
Previously, only Michael Johnson (whose time of 19.32 at the 1996 Atlanta Games Bolt tied in 2012) had defended the 100m.
Defending both the 100m and 200m?
Only Usain Bolt. Also, as with his 100m win in Beijing, Bolt clearly eased up in the final stretch. 19.32 is Usain Bolt's seasonal best, but he could have beaten it.
Jamaica has even more reason to celebrate: Jamaican runners Yohan Blake and Warren Weir joined Bolt on the podium.
Usain Bolt celebrated his win with his signature pose, as well as by doing a few push-ups. You can see photos of Usain Bolt's 200m victory below.
