Bolt calls 200 performance in New York worst of career

NEW YORK (AP) -- Usain Bolt called his performance in the 200 meters Saturday the worst of his career after he posted an uncharacteristically slow time in winning the race at the Adidas Grand Prix.

The last time he ran at this meet, Bolt set his first world record seven years ago with a stunning victory in the 100. But on Saturday, the six-time Olympic gold medalist was surprised and disappointed at how poorly he ran the curve and expressed frustration that his training hasn't been translating to strong showings in competitions.

Bolt had wanted to break 20 seconds for the first time this season, but he finished in 20.29 seconds Saturday. His world record is 19.19.

Bolt was still hopeful he can figure things out in time for August's world championships as he has in the past.
