Usain Bolt registered a facile win in his first race of the year in Europe, but the Jamaican failed to break 20 seconds in the 200m at the Golden Spike meet in Ostrava. In wet conditions, Bolt clocked 20.13 seconds, well outside his 19.19 seconds world record mark to beat American Isiah Young. “Can’t be satisfied if I don’t break 20 seconds,” said the 28-year-old who is building up to the World Championships in August. He won 100m, 200m and sprint relay gold at the 2013 World Championships in Moscow. “I just need to try to get myself into running shape. I really wanted to break 20 seconds but the conditions didn’t allow it. And I’m coming back from injuries, so it’s going to take time,” Bolt said.
