Hoping to break 20 seconds for the first time this year, Bolt ran what he deemed a "horrible" curve and acknowledged that he was so discouraged he eased up before the finish. His time of 20.29 was more than a second off his world record of 19.19.

"I don't know what happened," Bolt said. "I really can't explain it. It was really bad. It was one of the worst turns I've ever had in my entire life."

Bolt might now compete at the Jamaican championships later this month to try to get a sharper race in. He lamented that if the mystery isn't solved soon, "my legacy's going to be in trouble.
