London Olympics 200m final: Usain Bolt eyes Olympic historyZeenews Sports Bureau

London: Jamaican superstar Usain Bolt, who has moved closer to a sprint double after winning the 200m semifinals in 20.18sec, feels he could break his own world record of 19.19sec in the final at the London Olympics 2012 on Thursday.

"It`s a possibility, definitely. I can`t say but the track is fast, it`s going to be a good race."

Bolt had retained his 100 metres crown on Sunday and a victory in Thursday`s final would better the record of American legend Carl Lewis, who won three golds and a silver in the sprints at the 1984 and 1988 Games.

"The aim was all about just getting through," said Bolt. "I wanted to run the corner so I really pushed myself in the first 70 metres and then I tried to take it easier."


He said there was "no doubt whatsoever" that he would successfully defend the crown he won in Beijing four years ago.

"People always doubt the champion but I know what I can do so I never doubt myself. This is my favourite event so I am looking forward to it."

Team-mate Yohan Blake was the fastest qualifier after also slowing down markedly in winning the opening semi-final in 20.01, but Bolt has no doubts he will put his training partner in his place once again on Thursday.
