The 200m was not a great challenge for the Usain Bolt and the Jamaican’s as they did just enough to qualify for the 200m semifinals at the IAAF World Championships Beijing 2015. All sprinters did well at the men’s 200m heats in Beijing China.

There is an obvious lesson that many sprinters have not yet mastered and that is not to slow down or celebrate on or before the line. This World Championships is rife with the unprofessional act and many are paying for it; so too are the Jamaicans.
