Blake beats Bolt in 200 metres Olympic trials

Yohan Blake won his second of two races against Usain Bolt, claiming the 200 meters at the Jamaican Olympic trials in 19.80 seconds Sunday to edge the world-record holder by 0.03.
In a result that can no longer be considered a surprise, Blake started edging into the lead near the turn, then burst past Bolt for the narrow victory.
The win came two days after Blake, the reigning world 100 champion, beat Bolt in the 100 by running a 9.75.
If everything goes to form, their next meeting will be at the London Olympics.
In the women’s 200, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce ran a personal best 22.10 seconds to also complete the 100-200 sweep. She’ll be joined by Sherone Simpson and two-time defending Olympic champion Veronica Campbell-Brown.
