    Bolt wanted to lower his world record of 19.19 seconds but the light drizzle at Olympic Stadium on Thursday (Friday, Manila time) contributed to a slightly slower winning time of 19.78 in the final. After he crossed the finish line he slapped his leg.

    Andre de Grasse of Canada took silver in 20.02 to go with his bronze in the 100. Christophe Lemaitre of France was third in 20.12, holding off Adam Gemili of Britain in a photo finish.
