MOSCOW (AP) — Usain Bolt won his second gold medal of the world championships, cruising through the finish line to win the men's 200 meters Saturday.

The 100 champion won the race in 19.66 seconds for his third straight world title in the 200.

Warren Weir of Jamaica was second in 19.79 and Curtis Mitchell of the United States took bronze in 20.04.

Bolt can make it three golds Sunday when he runs for Jamaica in the 4x100 relay. He won all three of those medals at the 2009 worlds and at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics, but he missed out on the 100 title two years in South Korea when he was disqualified for a false start in the final.
