Usain Bolt wins 150 meter exhibition race at Copacabana beach

Washington: The two-time reigning Olympic champion over 100 and 200m Usain Bolt has won 150-m exhibition race on Copacabana beach.

The sprint star cruised to victory in 14.42 seconds, falling short of the world-best mark of 14.35 he set on the streets of Manchester in 2009.

The Jamaican headed off fellow West Indian Daniel Bailey of Antigua (14.88) and third-placed Brazilian Bruno Barrios (14.91).

Before Bolt set the record in 2009, the previous best over 150m was the 14.80 recorded by Italy`s Moscow Olympics 200m champion Pietro Mennea in 1983.
