Usain Bolt won gold at the World Athletics Championships 2011 in Daegu, South Korea on Saturday, September 03, 2011, with a time of 19.40 seconds, according to several sports news sites that day.

Apparently, Bolt has notably shown a spectacular performance that made him as the fourth-fastest runner of 200 meters in history.

Last Sunday, Usain was disqualified from the 100-meter run due to his false start, which was won by his Jamaican team-mate training partner, Yohan Blake.

“I was close to the world record,” Usain Bolt was quoted as saying, referring to the 19.19sec world record which he set in Berlin two years ago.

“Me, I wasn’t in the best of shape, so I wasn’t expecting world record. For me to come here and do 19.4 was a wonderful achievement,” he added.

“I am still the best. It was beautiful,” he revealed before he start a barefoot dance in the middle of about 45,000 people in Daegu stadium.

Meanwhile, Walter Dix of the United States won second place with a time of 19.70 seconds and Christophe Lemaitre finished as the third place winner having a time of 19.80 seconds.
