BERLIN - AUGUST 19: Usain Bolt of Jamaica competes in the men's 200 Metres Semi-Final during day five of the 12th IAAF World Athletics Championships at the Olympic Stadium on August 19, 2009 in Berlin, Germany. (Photo by Michael Steele/Getty Images)
It was just another case of history repeating Thursday night Usain Bolt became the first runner to complete the 100-200 double in consecutive Olympics, blowing away another fast field in the 200 meters. Bolt led a Jamaican 1-2-3 finish in the race, as he was followed by Yohan Blake and Warren Weir. Bolt now stands just one race away from equaling his performance in the 2008 Games in Beijing, where he won three golds (100, 200 and 4x100 relay). MORE TO COME
