Usain Bolt seemingly keeps finding ways to top himself.
After smiling for camera before he won the 100-meter semifinal, then coming from behind for a gold in the final, Bolt was up to his usual antics in the 200-meter heat on Tuesday.
Bolt raced out to a lead, and once he had first place sealed, began to jog, slowing down noticeably before the finish line, then crossing before someone could out-touch him.
He finished with a time of 20.28 seconds, which could have been markedly better if he didn’t slow down toward the end. Afterward, when asked if he could break a world record running like that, Bolt put it all in perspective with a great quip.
Olympic version of “ClownQuestionBro.” Asked if he can break world record running like he did today, Usain Bolt says, “It’s the heats, bro”

It’s even evident in photos that Bolt was running half-speed while his competitors sprinted hard.
This is all just practice for Bolt until the 200-meter semfinal on Wednesday.
