Beijing 201t: Bolt, Gatlin Set Up 200m Final Showdown

World 100m champion Usain Bolt is through to the IAAF World Championships  200m final, setting up an epic clash with Justin Gatlin.

The Jamaican never looked in any real trouble in Beijing as he cruised home in his semi-final with a time of 19.96.

He appeared to ease off with about 35m to go but that didn’t stop him producing a season-best time.

And that result sets up another showdown with two-time drug cheat Justin Gatlin, who won his semi-final with a time of 19.87.

Jamaican Bolt, the world recorder in both the 100m and 200m, beat Gatlin in the 100m final, although the American was the overwhelming favourite to win.
