London Olympics 2012: Usain Bolt says only 200m glory will cement status as track legend	 London: Sprinter Usain Bolt has said defending the 100m title at the London Olympics was just a step forward to cement his place as a track legend, and added that he needs to defend his 200m title as well at the Games to achieve his lifelong dream.

There was no time for partying after another historic sprinting landmark, Bolt had promised on Sunday. Not when he was still only half way through the door marked ‘Legend’.

“The 100m is just one step in the door. But now there’s the 200m. I have to defend this one too; that’s what’s going to make me a legend. I’m looking forward to it,” The Telegraph quoted Bolt, as saying.


In Berlin three years ago, Bolt’s 19.19sec run in 200m sprint marked one of track and field’s most mind-blowing performances, and his only opponent was the clock as he finished 0.62sec ahead of the field.

Bolt admits losing both 100m and 200m races in the Jamaican trials at the hands of fellow training partner Yohan Blake was a big knock for him, and it woke him out of his slumber.

“When Yohan Blake beat me twice at the (Jamaican) trials, it woke me up, opened my eyes,” Bolt said.

“It was pretty much a knock on my door with him saying ‘Usain, it’s Olympic year. I’m ready. Are you?’ I just got refocused and came back ready,” he added.
