Jamaica’s Usain Bolt (R) wins the men’s 200 metres final at the 2013 IAAF World Championships at the Luzhniki stadium in Moscow on August 17, 2013.
Bolt coasted to his third straight 200-meter world title with the race basically wrapped as soon as he entered the finishing straight Saturday.

Jamaican teammate Warren Weir never got close to Bolt’s world-leading mark of 19.66 seconds, but crossing .13 seconds later for silver still left him enough time to join Bolt in a reggae dance to Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds.”

Curtis Mitchell of the United States took bronze in 20.24 seconds but was never in the hunt for gold.
The wealth of Jamaican sprinting is such that they might well sweep their American rivals in unprecedented fashion, after Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce clinched a similar 100-200 double and has her final relay late on the closing day of the championships.
