KINGSTON, Jamaica — In a result that can no longer be considered a surprise, Yohan Blake beat Usain Bolt in the 200 meters at Jamaican Olympic trials Sunday, finishing in 19.80 seconds to edge the world-record holder by 0.03.
"A lot of people gave me encouragement, said, 'Yohan Blake, you can do it,'" Blake said. "I just wanted to keep performing and keep going."
"I can never be discouraged," Bolt said. "I'm never worried until my coach gets worried, and my coach isn't worried, so I'm OK."
Said coach Glen Mills: "Usain, he has the experience, the ability, he has been there already. He might be a little off at the moment, but I'm sure when the time of delivery comes around, he'll be on top of his game."
While word of Felix's mark had been swirling around Jamaica for about 24 hours, details of Blake's victory were just working their way to the States, where Wallace Spearmon won the 200 in 19.82 seconds Sunday.
"Well, I guess I'll see them in London," Spearmon said. "I'm surprised but I'm just going to worry about myself."
Blake, Bolt and Mills all conceded that Blake came into these trials in better shape than the man whose marks — 9.58 and 19.19 — sit atop the record book.
Blake will be making his first trip to the Olympics, which can be a daunting prospect, but if these victories over Bolt are giving him any sense of false confidence, he's not showing it.
"It leaves me to get back into training," he said. "It's not over. I still have the Olympics to go."
On the other hand, if Bolt was feeling any sense that he had it made — well, he no longer has to worry about that.
"I was very sad with my turn, it was awful, but I've been working more on the 100 meters," Bolt said. "I can't blame it on that, though. Just have to get my things together and get it done."
