Bolt targeting to smash own 200 m world record

November 23, 2013 12:27 IST

World's fastest man Usain Bolt has said that he wants to break his own 200m World record of 19.19 seconds in 2014.

According to Sky Sports, Bolt, who was last week named IAAF male World Athlete of the Year for a fifth time, captured yet another triple gold haul at the world championships in Moscow this summer, defending his 100 and 200m titles before anchoring the Jamaican team to victory in the 4x100 relay.

He also said that it was all about not getting injured this season, adding that it was his focus first and then he would try to push himself and hopefully get the world record.

Bolt did not break any records this year and he wants to put that right in 2014.
