Moscow: Usain Bolt wins relay gold

An Australian schoolboy has got his name written in record books after running 200m in 21.73secs - a record for his age group - it was also about 0.08sec quicker than what Usain Bolt ran as a 14-year-old.

Originally from the NSW southcoast, James Gallaugher made the record at his weekend performance in Townsville, News.com.au reported.

He is one of the people making their claim for selection for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
