Usain Bolt wins 100m and 200m Gold setting world records (Videos)

Usain Bolt sets another world record in the 200m final at Beijing Olympics 2008. Americans Shawn Crawford and Walter Dix get silver and bronze.

Officially, Usain Bolt won by an astounding 0.66 second over American Shawn Crawford, the defending Olympic champion. Crawford won the silver medal when Churandy Martina of Netherlands Antilles, who had finished 0.52 behind Bolt, was disqualified after a U.S. protest for running out of his lane.

American Walter Dix was awarded the bronze medal when the third man across the line, teammate Wallace Spearmon, also was disqualified for leaving his lane.

In the most outrageous display of speed to ever burn across the Olympic Games, Usain Bolt of Jamaica rocketed to gold in winning the men’s 100m dash in 9.69 seconds — not only a new world record but the first time in the history of human beings a man has run the distance under 9.7 seconds without a significant tailwind.

Richard THOMPSON of Trinidad & Tobago finished second, a full two-tenths of a second back, in 9.89.

Walter Dix of the United States took third, in 9.91.
