2012 Olympic champion and 2015 World Champion Usain Bolt, is unbeaten over 200 m since 2007. Bolt had only competed once over 200 m in 2016 before the Olympics, recording a time of 19.89 seconds, fifth in the world in 2016. US team entries had the 3 world leading times in 2016 before the Olympics 400 metres specialist LaShawn Merritt, 2015 World runner-up and American champion Justin Gatlin and Ameer Webb. The Canadian team was Brendon Rodney, Aaron Brown and Andre De Grasse. Bolt's training partner Miguel Francis and Britain's Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake were the other athletes to have run under 20 seconds that season. The Jamaican team also featured 2012 Olympic runner-up Yohan Blake.

In the semi-final round, #1 of the year. LaShawn Merritt cruised to an easy win in the first, with Christophe Lemaitre second. The second semi saw Usain Bolt run 19.78, in the last few metres Andre De Grasse rushed up to Bolt's shoulder, the two friends looking at each other and laughing as they crossed the line. Bolt's time was his fastest the year and De Grasse set a new Canadian record of 19.80 seconds. As Bud Winter the sprint coach who influenced Glen Mills, Bolt's coach, would say; "Relax and win." Both the time qualifiers Adam Gemili and Ramil Guliyev both came from this fastest of the three semi final heats. #3 of the year, Ameer Webb was left behind. In the third semi, Alonso Edward and Churandy Martina qualified in 1st and 2nd place. World #2 in 2016 Justin Gatlin held the lead with 50 metres to go but started looking around did not keep up his speed sufficiently. He should have seen Alonso Edward as he pulled ahead of Gatlin and on the far outside, Churandy Martina closed fast to take the second qualifying position. Gatlin failed to reach the final. 2012 silver medallist and number #2 runner of all time, Yohan Blake finished sixth.

The final was held following a light rainstorm that affected the women's javelin throw. The track was still wet and conditions cooler. Still the stadium was electric to see lightning, the star Usain Bolt in what was expected to be his last individual race in the Olympics. Bolt was in lane 6, playing to the camera and to the crowd before the race. Lemaitre and Martina were to his outside. Bolt got a good start and quickly made up the stagger on Lemaitre then Martina barely half way through the turn. Inside of him, DeGrasse got out well in lane 4 while Merritt lagged in 5. As the stagger began to resolve near the end of the turn, Bolt held a two metre lead over a wall of chasers. Martina held a slight edge on DeGrasse and Edward inside of him in lane 3 who were barely ahead of Merritt and Gemili, with Lemaitre slightly behind. Bolt was 9.9 at the half way mark. Down the home stretch, Bolt was working hard, his face showing the strain. Behind him, DeGrasse was starting to separate from the row of contenders. Only Guliyev was beaten. As they approached the finish Edwards and Merritt faded. Bolt had a 3 metre gap over DeGrasse, another metre and a half back, Lemaitre, Gemili, and Martina hit the finish line together. The photo finish revealed Lemaitre to be the bronze medalist, with only six thousandths of a second separating the three runners.

Bolt's winning time equalled his time from the semi-final he was joking around in. DeGrasse and most of the field was more than 2 tenths of a second slower than the night before.

After the race, Bolt celebrated his last individual victory, kissing the finish line and doing the lightning bolt.

Report: men's 200m final – Rio 2016 Olympic Games

The historic ‘triple triple’ came one giant step closer as Usain Bolt completed the second part of his Rio assignment by securing a hat-trick of Olympic 200m titles in typical style.

In the pre-race build up, the Jamaican global icon had spoken of having “a crack” at his own seven-year world record, but in truth injuries this year have impacted on his fitness, and the damp, slightly chilly conditions inside the Olympic Stadium probably precluded any realistic bid.

However, as he has done for so much of his astounding career in the event he calls his “favourite”, he proved so much better than the rest.

Tonight he stopped the clock in 19.78 – coincidentally exactly the same time as he clocked in the semi-finals – to strike gold by an emphatic margin of 0.24 from Andre De Grasse, who secured Canada’s first medal in the event at an Olympic Games since Percy Williams struck gold at the 1928 Amsterdam Games.

In a blanket finish for the bronze, Christophe Lemaitre of France was given the verdict in 20.12 despite recording exactly the same time to the hundredth as Adam Gemili of Great Britain. One hundredth further behind in fifth was Churandy Martina of the Netherlands, who like Bolt was appearing in his third successive Olympic 200m final.

However, in truth – despite the loud cheers from the French contingent celebrating Lemaitre’s medal – the race was all about Bolt and perhaps he best summed up everyone’s thoughts in his own words.

“I don’t need to prove anything else, he said of securing his third Olympic 200m gold medal and eighth in total. “What else can I do to prove to the world I am the greatest?”

With the eight finalists introduced to the crowd to the sound of loud rock guitar music, all eyes were on Bolt, who mouthed the words “are you ready?” to the camera before what many anticipate will be his final Olympic appearance in any individual event.

From the outset, Bolt – drawn in lane six – took control of the race and after 50 metres he was already rapidly closing the stagger on Lemaitre and Martina, the two athletes on his immediate outside.

Into the home straight, Bolt had already opened up his significant lead on the rest of the field with the remaining seven athletes strung out evenly across the track.

As the giant Jamaican entered the latter stages with a grimace, it was clear he was doggedly determined to post an impressive time to seal his individual legacy at the Olympic Games.

He flashed past the line to the acclaim of a raucous Olympic Stadium in 19.78 – much slower than his two previous gold medal-winning times in Beijing 2008 (19.30) and London 2012 (19.32) – yet tonight was genuinely all about winning and creating history, once more.

De Grasse, who had cheekily eye-balled Bolt when setting a Canadian record of 19.80 in the semi-finals, was the one athlete to significantly emerge from the pack in the final 60 metres or so to take silver and add to the 100m bronze he snared last Sunday.

With the naked eye it was impossible to separate Lemaitre and Gemili at the finish line, but it was the former athlete who was awarded the gong by just three thousandths of a second to secure France’s first Olympic medal in the event since 1960.

Gemili, who lay prostrate on the track after the result flashed up on the scoreboard, admitted he was “gutted” to miss out on a medal by such a fine margin.

Martina was officially given 20.13 – although in reality he was only just three thousandths behind Gemili – to claim fifth spot in a second successive Olympic 200m final.

World leader LaShawn Merritt of the USA, competing in his sixth race in Rio having earlier earned 400m bronze, may have been a little fatigued and had to settle for sixth in 20.19. For the record, Panama’s Alonso Edward, the 2009 world silver medallist, claimed seventh in 20.23 – the fastest time ever recorded for seventh in a 200m race. Turkey’s Ramil Guliyev ran 20.43 to place eighth.

Report: men's 200m semi-finals – Rio 2016 Olympic Games

Two of the biggest names in sprinting were unceremoniously dumped out of the competition at the semi-final stage of the men’s 200m, but Usain Bolt marched serenely on as his quest for a hat-trick of Olympic 200m titles came a step closer.

LaShawn Merritt, the Olympic 400m bronze medallist, revealed his potential to claim a second individual medal by powering to victory in the first semi-final in a time of 19.94.

Around the bend, the experienced Jamaican Nickel Ashmeade was prominent early as were Great Britain’s Danny Talbot and Christophe Lemaitre in lanes seven and eight. However, entering to home straight, Merritt established control to and cruised to a decisive win.

France's 2010 European champion Christophe Lemaitre finished with a strong late surge to take the second automatic spot in 20.01, his quickest time for four years.

Talbot trimmed 0.02 from his best to run 20.25 for third with Ashmeade fourth in 20.31.

Usain Bolt took the second semi-final in a season’s best of 19.78, but in some ways the story here was the fact Andre de Grasse trimmed 0.08 from his Canadian record when finishing second in 19.80.

However, fans of the two-time Olympic champion in both sprints and the 4x100m relay need not be too alarmed by the close nature of the final result, Bolt clearly has plenty more to give and spent the final 30 metres glancing across and grinning cheekily at the Canadian pretender to his crown.

To be fair, De Grasse replicated Bolt’s actions, and he is clearly hungry for more precious metal after winning the Olympic 100m bronze medal earlier in the week.

Great Britain’s Adam Gemili, who was on Bolt’s shoulder entering the home straight but lost significant ground to the two automatic qualifiers in the second half of the race, still had enough to hold on to third from Ramil Guliyev of Turkey, the 2014 European champion clocking 20.08 and edging Guliyev by 0.01.

The major drama was reserved for the third and last semi-final as world silver medallist Justin Gatlin and Olympic silver medallist Yohan Blake were both eliminated.

Entering the home stretch, both Gatlin and Blake held a marginal advantage but Alonso Edward of Panama and Spanish record-holder Bruno Hortelano were also prominent.

The first big name to crack was Blake, who appeared to abruptly decelerate midway down the home stretch. In the latter stages, it was Edward who moved to the front with European 100m champion Churandy Martina of the Netherlands closing quickly with a late gallop for the line.

Edward, the 2009 world silver medallist, was given the verdict in a time of 20.07 with Martina edging the fading Gatlin by 0.03 to snatch the second automatic qualifying spot in 20.10.

Hortelano again ran with distinction to take fourth in 20.16, just 0.04 away from the national record he set in the first round. Blake wound up a distant sixth in 20.37.

Report: men's 200m heats – Rio 2016 Olympic Games

A high-class opening round of the 200m, which served up five national records, and a clutch of personal best and season best times, whetted the appetite for Wednesday’s semi-finals, which look likes making compelling viewing.

In heat one, 2009 world 200m silver medallist Alonso Edward amply demonstrated the quality of what was needed to advance to the semi-finals. The Panamanian stormed to victory in 20.19, winning by 0.08 from Great Britain’s Danny Talbot, who equalled his best to take the second and final qualification spot.

A loaded second heat proved no respecter of reputations as Spain’s Bruno Hortelano lowered his own national record by 0.06 to win in 20.12. The European champion finished like an express train to pip Jamaica’s Yohan Blake, the second fastest 200m sprinter in history, by 0.01.

Such was the quality of the heat that world number three, USA’s Ameer Webb, who clocked 20.31 for third, only just scraped into the semi-finals on time and there will be no place in the semi-finals for world bronze medallist Anaso Jobodwana of South Africa, who in his first outing of an injury-cursed season recorded 20.53 for fourth place. 

Bahrain has had a successful first four days of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games athletics programme and that streak was maintained by Salem Eid Yaqoob as he carved 0.15 from his previous best to set a national record of 20.19 to win heat three.

Just 0.04 adrift in second was Turkey’s European silver medallist Ramil Guliyev, who recorded a season’s best of 20.23. Canada’s Aaron Brown registered the same time and booked a spot in the semi-finals on time.

Mexican record-holder Jose Carlos Herrara blasted to a heat four victory in 20.29, some 0.15 clear of Roberto Skyers of Cuba. The fourth fastest 200m runner in the world year, Miguel Francis of Antigua and Barbuda, was a non-starter.

Olympic 100m silver medallist Justin Gatlin began his half-lap quest without drama as he crossed the finish line in cruise control in a time of 20.42.

The superior finish of Matteo Galvan crucially earned the Italian second place – and safe passage into the semi-finals – in a photo-finish from Ramon Gittens of Barbados. Both were credited with 20.58 but Gittens, the world indoor 60m bronze medallist, was eliminated.

The big two in heat six, Nickel Ashmeade and Adam Gemili, proved far too good for the opposition and comfortably got the two automatic spots.

Ashmeade, the vastly experienced Jamaican and three-time world 200m finalist, registered 20.15 to finish 0.05 clear of Gemili, Great Britain’s 2014 European champion.

Brenes and Merritt move down distance

Nery Brenes, the 2012 world indoor 400m champion, showed his ability over half that distance by romping to an impressive heat seven win in a Costa Rican record of 20.20.

Brenes managed to hack 0.13 from his previous best to finish 0.09 clear of European 100m champion Churandy Martina of the Netherlands.

As a further measure of the sheer quality and depth of the competition, Brendon Rodney of Canada finished third in a far-from-shabby 20.34 but this was not sufficient to advance. 

Switching down in distance, Olympic 400m bronze medallist LaShawn Merritt also showed he can be a genuine contender in the 200m with a heat eight win in 20.15. The US sprinter, who has made a major breakthrough this year over what his compatriots call the furlong, and who is currently the world leader following his stunning 19.74 clocking at the US Championships, proved 0.13 superior to France’s 2010 European champion Christophe Lemaitre, who also advanced automatically.

Usain Bolt cantered to heat nine victory in 20.29 and, almost inevitably, got the biggest cheer of the morning.

The two-time defending Olympic champion, who has vowed to target his world record time of 19.19 in Rio, completely eased back down the home straight to virtually jog to what for him was a routine win.

Nigeria’s Ejowvokoghene Oduduru wiped 0.11 from his lifetime best to grab the second spot in 20.34 and advance.

Olympic 100m bronze medallist Andre De Grasse looks like being a major factor in this event as well after the Canadian produced the fastest time of the morning, and the fastest time ever in an Olympic Games first round, with an eye-catching heat ten win in 20.09.

Great Britain’s sub-20 second performer Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake shaded second spot by 0.03 in 20.24 while Trinidad and Tobago’s Rondel Sorrillo missed out an automatic qualification place in third place, but progressed on time to the semi-finals.
