Usain Bolt won the 200 meters in the Jamaica International Invitational in 19.56 seconds, the fourth-fastest time ever.

Bolt's time on Saturday at National Stadium was 0.37 seconds off the world record of 19.19 that he set last year in the world championships in Berlin.

The Olympic star also ran a 19.30 in the Beijing Olympics, and has run 19.57 twice. Michael Johnson has the third-best time at 19.32.

Bolt, who also holds the world record in the 100, said he is not trying to break records this season and "just wanted to come out here and give Jamaica a good show."

American Wallace Spearmon was second in 19.98. Veronica Campbell-Brown won the women's event in 22.60. Also, Bolt rival Tyson Gay won the men's 400 in 45.05.
