Usain, taking second place , seems even more motivated than ever to excel with his fellow countrymen in London.

It looks like Mr. Bolt will have his shot at redemption today:

“Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake sauntered through their 200 meters semi-finals on Saturday to set up another rematch and an explosive finish to the Jamaican Olympic trials.

The men’s 200m on Sunday will provide the grand-finale to the four-day meeting that could prove even more dramatic than their 100m showdown won by Blake, as the two fastest men ever over the distance go head-to-head for a last time before London.
