Rio 2016 Olympics: Yohan Blake, Nickel Ashmeade and Usain Bolt Moves On To 200m Semi Finals

Jamaica was well represented this morning in Rio, as all three Jamaican well, completed their races successfully; with times of 20.15s, 20.19s and 20.28s.

Yohan Blake started his 200m efforts this morning at the Rio 2016 Olympics. He cruised down at the line and was just nicked out of first place. He seemed comfortable, running 20.13s, and should have no problems in the semi finals.

Nickel Ashmeade made his attempt in heat 6, and placed first in his event with 20.15s. He  was pushed by the Great Britain runner, but should perform well in semi finals tomorrow.

Every one eagerly awaited the ‘big man’ Usain Bolt, who ran in heat 9 of the 200m heats. After securing the first 150 meters of the race, Bolt jogged 20.28s, the final 50 meters, surveying his competition with ease.
