BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, CMC:

JAMAICAN :smiley: USAIN Bolt equalled the 200 metres World Junior Record yesterday evening when he won the event in 20.13 seconds at the Pan American Junior Track and Field Championship at the National Stadium here.

Bolt sped away from his rivals to equal Roy Martin’s 1985 world mark, while adding the Pan Am Junior title to the World Junior (Under-20) and World Youth (Under-18) titles he already holds over the distance.

The teenager’s amazing run makes him the fifth fastest in the world so far this year, behind American Bernard Williams (20.01) and Shawn Crawford (20.02), Japan’s Shingo Suetsugo (20.03), and Americans Coby Miller (20.04) and Joshua Johnson (20.05).

Bolt, who turns 17 years old next month, is expected to represent Jamaica at the August 23-31 World (Senior) Championship in France.

This guy is incredible, anyone know how he trains?

Absolutely unreal!!!
