LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) - Usain Bolt ran the fourth fastest 200-meter race ever in 19.59 seconds in sinking temperatures and heavy rainfall at the Athletissima meet.

It was one-hundredth of a second slower than what American Tyson
Gay ran in May with fair weather and a breeze at his back.

But with the temperature in Lausanne, Switzerland, dipping to 60 degrees and the track slowed by a downpour, Bolt showed Tuesday he was back in top form a year after winning the 100 and 200 in world
record time at the Beijing Olympics.
