Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt returned to action in the 200m at the ExxonMobil Bislett Games in Oslo on Thursday night, in the wake of his 100m defeat to American Justin Gatlin in Rome.

The 200m race was the last event of the evening as the Olympic gold medalist paced through to provide the only meeting record of the IAAF Diamond League Oslo meeting.

Bolt cautiously sprang out of his block after the dismissal of European champion Churandy Martina for a false start and raced through to the finish line in 19.79secs which was faster than the meeting record set by Namibia’s Frankie Fredericks in 1996.

Norway’s Jaysuma Saidy Ndure finished second with a season’s best of 20.36secs with Britain’s James Ellington third in 20.55secs.

On a dry and cold evening, the multiple World-record holder might have wished there was a bit of summer haze in the weather.

“It was very chilly today, but I ran as fast as I could, and as I promised,” Bolt said. “I’m never worried; I never focus on somebody else.”

“… My goals are the same- to be the best in the world and win three gold medals in Moscow. And my dream is to break 19 seconds in the 200m,” added Bolt.
