Usain Bolt’s shock defeat still doesn’t negate the fact that he is the fastest man alive

Usain Bolt's shock defeat fastest man alive

Saturday night played witness to some of the most heart-breaking scenes in world athletics.

Gatlin's victory in the 100m final, edging out US teammate Christian Coleman into silver, saw the American sprinter consign Usain Bolt to a third-place finish in the Jamaican's final competitive 100m race.

He pulled up injured in what was in final ever race.

US finished second, with a time of 37.52, while Japan took third (38.04). Bolt, who came third in the individual 100m behind Gatlin and his fellow teammate Christian Coleman, was comforted by his teammates after getting to his feet, his face marked with pain.

"I think it got the better of us", Blake said. But we were taken to the area behind the boarding to be ready to run, but we waited there for 10-15 minutes.

They were holding us too long in the call room. But we have to be strict on this to keep the sport in a good light.

De Grasse, 22, collected 100m bronze and 200m silver medals at Rio 2016 and was expected to add to his haul in London until a hamstring injury forced him to withdraw.

Bolt was attended to by medics but refused a ride in a wheelchair off the track, instead finally getting up and limping alongside his teammates through to the finish line and then off into the bowels of the stadium for treatment. 'I've been doing this pretty much since I was ten, so all I know is track.

First, it was American Justin Gatlin who rained on Bolt's 100m parade by winning the world title.

London 2012 saw another rush of golds for the Jamaican. "It was ridiculous, man", he said.

"These are my two events that I have dominated for years".

After the Jamaican team doctor, Kevin Jones, announced Bolt had suffered muscle cramp, Michael Johnson told the BBC it was "one season too many" for the sprinter. "It would have been nice to see him win but it didn't happen and no-one is going to give it to you, no matter who you are, even Usain Bolt".
