World's Fastest Man Usain Bolt broke the 200 m world record at the Beijing Olympics to become the first man to win both the men's 100- and 200- meter dashes at the same Olympic Games in world-record times.

Jamaican Usain Bolt breaks the world record with a time of 19.30 seconds to win the gold medal in the Men's 200m Final at the Bird's Nest Stadium during the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games on August 20, 2008. Bolt became the first man since Carl Lewis in 1984 to sweep the 100 and 200 gold medals at an Olympics. He ran 9.69 seconds to win 100 m Olympic Gold Medal on August 16, 2008.
