Usain Bolt, one victory from becoming the first man to repeat as double Olympic sprint champion, is wary of party poopers.

Bolt knows rivals want to steal his thunder after he cruised into Thursday night's 200m final at the London Games.

- THE RACE WILL BE RUN AT 5:55am ON FRIDAY (AEST) -

His Jamaican teammate Johan Blake was the fastest qualifier for the medal race, winning his semi-final in 20.01 seconds on Wednesday night.

"Anything can happen," said Blake, who beat Bolt in the 200m at the Jamaican trials.

Bolt clocked 20.18s to win his semi in typical showman's style.

"There is a lot of people there who have come to spoil the party," Bolt said.

But the star attraction of the Games held "no doubt whatsoever" he would win the 200m gold medal.

"People always doubt the champion but I know what I can do so I never doubt myself," he said.

"This is my favourite event so I am looking forward to it."

Bolt also said he could break his world record of 19.19s in the final.

"It's a possibility, definitely ... the track is fast," he said.

Bolt has been the talk of the Olympics, again, after winning the 100-metres final in Olympic Record ytime and then partying with a bunch of Swedish handballer.

We are unsure if they gave him a hand..ball of his own.
