All eyes are on world's fastest man Usain Bolt again because Men's 200 meter final will start a few hours from now. The big question is - will he defend his Olympic 200 meter title?
The same question was put up before the 100 meter sprint but Bolt silenced the doubting Thomases by defending his title with a time of 9.63. He is expected to repeat the same in the 200 meters too tonight.
The 25-year-old Jamaican clocked a world record time of 9.69 seconds in the 100 meters and 19.30 seconds in the 200 meters at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. He then broke his own record in the following year by lowering the time to 9.58 seconds and 19.19 seconds in the two sprint events.
Having defended his 100 meters title, he will hit the track tonight to defend the 200 meters. And it looks like he is unstoppable - at least that's what his confidence suggests.
"I'm ready. This is my favourite event so I'm looking forward to it," Bolt told reporters after finishing the semi final with a time of 20.18 seconds.
On slowing down his pace after the first 100 meters, he said, "You can't work too hard, you've got the finals. That was the aim, you can't push too hard."
Well, it's to be seen if his teammate Yohan Blake, American Wallace Spearmon and others can beat him in his favourite event.
Here is the list of finalists for the Men's 200m race:
1. Yohan Blake (Jamaica)
2. Wallace Spearmon (U.S.)
3. Christophe Lemaitre (France)
4. Churandy Martina (Netherlands)
5. Usain Bolt (Jamaica)
6. Anaso Jobodwana (South Africa)
