Usain Bolt Wins 200m Gold Medal At 2015 World Athletics Championships
Usain Bolt has garnered yet another gold medal. Deemed the fastest man alive, Bolt dashed his way to first place during the 200m race at the 2015 World Athletics Championships in Beijing, China (Aug. 27).
According to CNN, the Jamaica-native reached the finish line in 19.55 seconds, defeating America’s Justin Gatlin who crossed the end in 19.74 seconds.
In an interview with BBC Sport, the 29-year-old decorated athlete said, “It’s great, a fourth [world title] win over 200m and it means a lot to me. I’m happy to be a 10-time World Championships gold medalist, especially when people have been saying I would lose.”
Throughout the race, Bolt didn’t falter, but he took a tumble during his victory walk when a cameraman accidentally rolled into him on his segway. In response to the collision, Bolt charismatically said, “He tried to kill me, I don’t know what was going on.”
