(Newser) – Yep, he's still fast. Usain Bolt didn't get a chance to prove it last week when a false start disqualified him from the 100 meters at the World Championships. He didn't make the same mistake today in the 200 meters, blowing past the field with the fourth-fastest time in history (19:40), reports USA Today. "I'm back to my old self now," he said. The USA's Michael Dix finished second (19:70).
