The 23-year-old 100 and 200 metres world and Olympic champion looked to be on course for another world record, but slowed down in the final stages to finish in 19.68 seconds, 0.49 seconds slower than the mark he set at the world championships. Carmelita Jeter of USA brought cheers from the crowd when she won the women's 100 metres in 10.67 seconds, the third fastest ever.
