Germany Athletics Worlds

BERLIN (AP) — Olympic champion Usain Bolt has set a world record of 19.19 seconds to add the world title in the 200 meters to his gold in the 100.

Exactly one year after taking gold at the Beijing Games with a record of 19.30, Bolt had an even greater run. Like the record in the 100 meters Sunday, he shaved .11 seconds off his mark.

Panama’s Alonso Edward was second, a massive .62 seconds behind. Wallace Spearmon of the United States took bronze.

Defending champion Tyson Gay was out with an injury.
