Berlin: Barely an hour after shattering his 100m world record for a first world title, Usain Bolt was stretching and jogging at the Olympic Stadium.
After all, one year ago, he followed up such a double at Beijing Bird’s Nest stadium with two more golds and two more world records—in the 200 and sprint relays. Few at Berlin’s Olympic Stadium will be expecting anything less.
Even though he had just turned days of hyperbole into an understatement again by slashing 0.11 seconds of his record to bring it to 9.58 on Sunday, even Bolt is among the doubters he can turn Berlin into a second Beijing.
“I doubt I will get a world record in the 200,” the Jamaican said.
