Jamaica’s Yohan Blake, only 19 years old, ran 19.78 to come second to Tyson Gay’s power win and meeting record in the 200m at Monaco tonight. Gay’s knees seemed to be bothering him afterwards, but teenager Blake looked completely untroubled by the pace of the run and having to come in from lane 8. He looks like a bit of a showman to boot. Jamaican sprint fans must be happy as Larry with Usain Bolt, Asafa Powell and Yohan Blake to support. Blake is Bolt’s training partner.
The men’s 100m and 200m sprints are my favourite events in athletics, I do enjoy watching new runners come through.
