Usain Bolt leveled the competition once again with a winning time of 19.66 seconds in the 200-meter finals of the world championships in Moscow on Saturday.

It was the third consecutive world title for Bolt in the 200, and coupled with his victory in the 100 last week, the Jamaican superstar can still call himself the fastest man on the planet.

Countryman Warren Weir took the silver medal with a time of 19.79, and American Curtis Mitchell clocked in at 20.04 for bronze.

Starting from the No. 4 position, Bolt used his momentum around the two turns to build a blinding lead down the stretch run. Weir gained some on his compatriot in the last 20 meters, but his burst came too late.

Bolt has another race on Sunday, where he will lead Jamaica in the 4x100 relay. It would be the third gold of these championships for Bolt, a feat he accomplished in back in 2009 and at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics.
