| 0 Comments

In the cold and rain of Lausanne, Usain Bolt ran the fourth fastest time ever over 200 meters-19.59, with LaShawn Merritt in 20.41 and Paul Hession of Ireland in 20.50 for third! Bolt told local media that he would concentrate on the 100 meters between now and Berlin, and announced that he was at about 80 percent of his complete fitness....not bad for 80 percent fitness!
