Zurich records for Bolt, Blake

ZURICH, Switzerland – Not even rain and chilly temperatures could prevent sprint icon Usain Bolt and fellow Jamaican Yohan Blake from sweeping the sprints in record times at the prestigious Weltklasse Zürich Diamond League today.
While Bolt clocked 19.66 seconds to win the 200 metres to lead a Jamaica one-two-three, Blake raced to 9.76 seconds to capture the 100 metres, as they signed off their campaigns for the year on the international circuit.
Olympic 100m champion, Jamaican Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce also tasted victory, exacting revenge for two back-to-back defeats to American Carmerlita Jeter by storming to 10.83 seconds to win the event.
