Usain Bolt is human--doesn't set a WR in the 300!
Ostrava, Czech Republic, May 27
  Usain Bolt was going after Michael Johnson's "World Record" (not an official IAAF event) of 30.85 in the 300-meters, but fell short with his winning time of 30.97, which is the 2nd fastest performance in history in the seldom-run event.
    Fellow Jamaican Asafa Powell didn't let the rain bother him, running 9.88 in his heat of the 100 and a world-leading 9.83 in the final.
