Usain Bolt won the men’s 200M at the World Championships on Saturday with a world-leading time of 19.66.

Bolt ran to a dominant victory to give him a repeat of his performance in London: gold medals in the 100M and 200M races.

The Trelawny native was followed by countryman Warren Weir, who finished with a personal-best time of 19.79 seconds, ahead of American Curtis Mitchell, who finished in 20.04.

Jamaica finished just short of a 1-2-3 sweep, with Nickel Ashmeade finishing fourth with a time of 20.05 seconds. The win by Bolt gave Jamaica a four-for-four sweep of the men’s and women’s 100M and 200M races.

If there were ever any doubts that Bolt remains the best sprinter in the world, he put them to rest with a stellar showing in Moscow.

The only question is, will anyone ever catch up with him?
