Blake beats Bolt again

YOHAN Blake has completed a second successive victory against Usain Bolt, winning the 200 metres at the Jamaican Olympic trials in 19.80 seconds to edge the world-record holder by 0.03 seconds.

Blake edged into the lead near the turn then burst past Bolt for the narrow victory.

The win came two days after Blake, the reigning world 100 champion, beat Usain Bolt in the 100m at the Jamaican Olympic - clocking 9.75sec.

Bolt was the first athlete to approach his training partner and friend and give him a big bear hug.

Moments later, Bolt was down on the ground, getting his right hamstring stretched out, while Blake was celebrating - rather modestly - in front of the grandstand.
