Berlin (Germany), Aug.21 (ANI): Jamiacan sprinter and world record holder in the 100 meters and 200 meters dash, Usain Bolt, has set himself a new goal of being knighted by the Queen.

Bolt's new goal was announced hours after he lopped off 0.11 seconds off his previous 200 meter mark to win in 19.19sec. Earlier, he had set a new 100 meter record of 9.58 seconds. Bolt said he like to also set a world record in the 4x100m relay.

"It would be a great thing for Queen Elizabeth to knight me and for me to get the title Sir Usain Bolt," said the Jamaican, who is 23 today.

Bolt's 19.19secs gave him gold by almost 10 metres - despite the first five men all going under 20 seconds.

"I can definitely say I didn't expect it," he said. "I was tired but thought, 'What the heck, let's try'.

In the space of a year and four days Bolt has won five major championship gold medals - all of them in world-record times. (ANI)
