Usain Bolt wins 200 at cold, wet Golden Spike meet

OSTRAVA, Czech Republic (AP) -- Usain Bolt won the 200 meters race at the Golden Spike meet on Tuesday, as the Jamaican star prepares for the world championships after a season marred by injuries.

Facing rain and cold at the IAAF World Challenge event, Bolt came out of the bend slightly ahead and breezed unchallenged to victory, crossing the finish line in 20.13.

The six-time Olympic champion improved on his previous season's best of 20.20, clocked in April in Jamaica.

It was his first race in Europe this season as he gets into shape for the worlds in August in Beijing.

Isiah Young of the United States finished second in 20.35 and Lykourgos Stefanos Tsakonas of Greece was third in 20.62.
