Usain Bolt's promise that he would not seek to take the place of another worthy Jamaican sprinter at the upcoming Commonwealth Games in Glasgow is now in the hands of the Jamaican selectors after the national trials witnessed some typically rapid times.
In the absence of Bolt and Yohan Blake, who were not fully fit, Rasheed Dwyer won the title in 20.04sec from Warren Weir (20.17) and Jason Livermore (20.25).
All three times are comfortably inside the Glasgow 2014 qualifying mark so Jamaica will have to overlook one of the trio if they are to select Bolt, the world-record holder, to run the 200m at the Commonwealth Games.

As it stands, Bolt has only officially made himself available for the 4x100m relay, reluctant to take the place of a fully-fit sprinter who has qualified on merit.
