Usain Bolt of Jamaica sprints to the finish line between Walter Dix of the U.S. (2nd L) Nickel Ashmeade of Jamaica (L) Bruno de Barros of Brazil (2nd R) and Rondel Sorrillo of Trinidad and Tobago (R) to win the men's 200 metres final at the IAAF World Athletics Championships in Daegu, South Korea, Sept. 3.

AP reports:

Knowing he had something to prove, there was no braggadocio during the race. Instead, he gritted his teeth in utter effort over the last 20 meters before dipping across the line for the fastest time in two years.

"I am still the best," Bolt told an elated crowd of about 45,000 at Daegu Stadium before starting a barefoot dance to a deafening beat. "It was beautiful."
