Usain Bolt has well and truly cemented his legendary status after winning his 11th individual world or Olympic sprint title from a possible 12 since he took track and field by storm at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. On Thursday, Bolt clocked a world-leading 19.55 seconds to beat Justin Gatlin by nearly two-tenths to add the 200m to his 100m title. "I knew I had to get through the 150 first and I ran my hardest and got it done -- after the first 150 I looked across and I could see that Justin Gatlin was tired so it was never a doubt that I was going to win the race." Bolt savoured the moment after plunging the dagger into Gatlin for a second time.
By Nandita Bose CHICAGO (Reuters) - U.S. retailers including Toys R Us are starting to negotiate with their Chinese suppliers to take advantage of lower manufacturing costs after China devalued the yuan, with many saying they want to be ready if currencies in China and other Asian countries drop more against the dollar. Earlier this month, China devalued its tightly controlled currency in an effort to boost growth and help flagging exports. The nearly 2 percent cut on Aug. 11, the most significant downward adjustment to the yuan since 1994, will make imports from China cheaper.
