Jamaica‘s world class, top athletes dominated the men’s 200m finals at the London 2012 Olympics and decimated the other competitors. No one was able to catch Usain Bolt, Yohan Blake and Warren Weir who held on to take third place.

Usain went out early and passed Warren Weir of Jamaica in four strides, Yohan Blake was close behind him, but he was not able to catch Bolt who was determined to prove he was a sprint legend and would take the men’s sprint double, in near world record times 19.32.

In Jamaica’s capital city, Kingston, specifically Half Way Tree is in sheer jubilation and pandemonium as the Jamaican people celebrate a great and deserving victory.
