Olympics 2012: Usain Bolt Wins Gold Medal In Men's 200m Final

Usain Bolt won yet another event on Thursday, dashing to the finish line in the men's 200m final to claim a gold medal. Bolt crossed in a time of 19.32 seconds, just milliseconds behind the world record he set in 2009 of 19.19. He was one of three Jamaicans to medal in the race.

Yohan Blake, who has seemingly been the runner-up to Bolt in every race he does in London, took home the silver medal. He raced an impressive 19.44 seconds, staying close to the leaders until the very end. Weir Warren finished in third place with a time of 19.84 seconds, just barely edging out American runner Wallace Spearman and his time of 19.90.

You can find the full results here. NBC will also air the race on tape-delay this evening in case you missed it live.
