Review of revision 864929 [Passed]Edit

Please edit the article for accuracyEdit

The article incorrectly states that "Bolt sped through the 200m in a time of 19.19 seconds, breaking the 19.32 mark set by Michael Johnson of the United States in 1996."

The fact is that Bolt already broke Michael Johnson's record at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing by running a time of 19.30. (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usain_Bolt#2008_Summer_Olympics). So in this recent feat, Bolt was breaking his own world record, similar to the 100m run where he broke his 9.69 to set a new record of 9.58.
