Johnson says Bolt will be too tired to break 200m record

BERLIN — American legend Michael Johnson does not believe Usain Bolt will not break his 200 metres world record on Thursday, after running seven races already at the world championships.

Johnson said that the 22-year-old Jamaican, who won the 100m world title in a world record of 9.58sec on Sunday, was showing signs of fatigue and could only leave Berlin with the gold medal.

“His exertions this week have taken a lot out of him,” said Johnson, whose 200m world record was broken by Bolt in Beijing last year in the Olympic final when the Jamaican ran 19.30sec.

“He’s also been very busy and he looks tired. It is certainly less possible than it was a few nights ago. Also he has said that his training this year hasn’t been as good as last year.”
