London 2012: The Olympic Games In Pix Day 13
Three words this time. Why Bolt, why? Why did you not run flatout for the full 200m, if you would have you would surely have beaten the world record? The men's 200m was another top drawer display by Usian Bolt, who is now the only athlete ever to have won back to back Olympic gold in the 100m and 200m at two Olympic Games. But there was more, much more. Swimming, wrestling, women's boxing, the exciting BMX racing and the little matter of Kenya's David Lekuta Rudisha beating his own world record in the 800m final. This race was so fast that even the 8th place runner would have won gold in the previous three Olmypic Games with his time. Just two more days of competing to go before the big closing ceremony. The Spice Girls, George Michael, Muse, The Pet Shop Boys and many more are scheduled to give the London Olympics the send off they deserve.
