Bolt breezes to take 200m in Zurich Diamond League
Geneva: London Olympics champion Usain Bolt sprinted to a comfortable 200m win in the Diamond League meeting in Zurich.
Bolt posted a meet record of 19.66 seconds as his fellow Jamaicans swept the next three spots in this men`s event Thursday.
Nickel Ashmeade who did not compete in the Olympics after only finishing fourth in the Jamaican trials, claimed second in a personal best of 19.85.
Jason Young and Olympic bronze medallist Warren Weir were third (20.08) and fourth (20.18), respectively.
Bolt, who bagged 100m, 200m and 4x100m titles in London earlier this month to repeat his feat in Beijing four years ago, said he was happy about his result in Zurich.
"Running under 20 seconds is good. I am happy to run sub-20sec but I did not want to push my body -- it`s the end of the season and I have to be careful," said the 26-year-old.
