World Championships Record in 4×100 m relay stands at 37.38 as set by American Team (Darvis Patton, Wallace Spearmon, Tyson Gay, LeRoy Dixon) in 2007.
He did it again. Next final race and next world record. August 20th, 2009 Usain Bolt ran 200 m in 19.19 at the 12th IAAF World Championships in Athletics Berlin 2009. He is genius and amazing sprinter.
I think, after his 100 m final race in Berlin when Bolt broke his own record, everybody was sure that he is able to break the record in 200 m race. The question was: how fast he can run? Now, we got the answer. Usain Bolt ran 200 m in 19.19 and his average speed on this distance was 10.4221 m/s. (Click on the link to get conversion into other units of measurement e.g mph, kmh, yd/s)

Usain Bolt’s amazing 100m world record shows that he is the fastest man in the world ever. Is he able to break the 200 m world record? Let’s try to predict Bolt’s time in 200m final race in Berlin 2009.
Bolt’s speed and time prediction during the final 200 m race in Berlin 2009
Usain’s Bolt average speed in the winning 100m men’s race was: 100m/9.58s = 10.43841 m/s (23.3501mph). So, if he can run 200 meters with this speed, he can get the time 200m/10.43841m/s = 19.16s !!! (his current world record is 19.30s) but, as we look at previous world records (see table below), average speed on 200m distance is faster then during 100m race, so we can expect even better result.
As we can see, 200m distance speed is about 0.4-0.6% faster then on 100m distance. So, expected Bolt’s speed could vary beetween 10.43 m/s and 10.50 m/s. It gives us amazing times between 19.175s and 19.048s. I, personaly, think that Usain Bolt is able to run 200 m in Berlin in about 19.15s
