Bolt runs track record 19.79 in 200 at Bislett
OSLO (AP) - Usain Bolt rallied from a rare defeat with a track record at the Bislett Games on Thursday in his debut 200 meters of the season.
Bolt silenced critics of his conditioning by finishing in 19.79 seconds, the only athlete to break the 20-second mark over 200 meters this season.
Norway's Jaysuma Saidy Ndure was second in a season-best 20.36 seconds, with James Ellington of Britain third in 20.55.
Last week, Bolt lost the 100-meter race to American Justin Gatlin by one-hundredth of a second in Rome.
Bolt set the Bislett record by finishing three-hundredths faster than Frank Fredericks of Namibia in 1996.
