Usain Bolt broke his own world record in the 200 meters, running 19.19 seconds at the track and field world championships in Berlin.Amazing performance. What strikes me most is ran consecutive 100 meters without stopping at a pace 9.595 or only 15 thousands of a second slower than the world record 100 meter pace from two days ago. In other words he ran the 200 meters faster than anyone else in history has run a 100 meters.
It’s the second world mark of the meet for Bolt, who topped his own 100-meter standard by running 9.58 seconds four days ago. He set the previous 200 mark of 19.30 seconds at the 2008 Olympics.
The numbers seem small but he is lowering this record at a colossal pace. A Ralph Boston pace.
