...And another record destroyed by Jamaica's Usain Bolt (19.19)
(CNN) -- Usain Bolt broke his own world record in the 200m meters as he completed the sprint double in the world championships in Berlin in sensational style.
The remarkable Jamaican took gold in 19.19 seconds, shaving just over a tenth of a second off the mark he set in winning the 200m at last year's Beijing Olympics.
Bolt smashed his own 100m world record with a 9.58 seconds clocking in claiming gold in the shorter sprint on the second day of the championships.
Bolt, who celebrates his 23rd birthday on Friday, made a fine start and was well clear of the field coming around the bend, clearly pushing to the line as he eyed his old mark of 19.30 seconds.
Alonso Edwards of Panama claimed a fine silver in 19.81 seconds with Wallace Spearmon of the United States taking the bronze in 19.85 seconds.
Bolt will bid to emulate his triple gold medal tally from Beijing in the sprint relay for Jamaica in the final day of the championships on Sunday.
Earlier, Jamaica's gold rush in Berlin continued with victory for Melaine Walker in the women's 400m hurdles.
Walker ran the second fastest time in history of 52.42 seconds to relegate Olympic champion Lashinda Demus of the United States to the silver medal position while Trinidad and Tobago's Josanne Lucas took bronze.More News Articles
