Bolt back on track at athletics world

6:52 am on 19 August 2009

UsAIn Bolt has started his second event at the world athletics championships in Berlin, looking a bit sluggish in the opening round of the men 's 200 metres, but he's comfortably through to the semi-finals.

After his earth shattering 100 metres effort on Monday, Bolt did the bare minimum in the opening round before winning his quarter-final, though he had only the fifth fastest qualfying time for the semis, behind fellow Jamaican Steve Mullings who clocked 20.23.

Bolt set the world mark of 19.3 seconds at last year's Beijing Olympics.
