Usain Bolt’s thunder stolen by Justin Gatlin in final 100m race Legendary Jamaican runner takes bronze behind 2 Americans

Posted on 06 August 2017 by admin

Usain Bolt has ended his stellar 100-metre career without a world title in his final individual race. In a tight finish, Bolt was punished for his slow start and Justin Gatlin held him off at the line in 9.92 seconds. American sprinter Christian Coleman took silver in 9.94 seconds and Bolt took bronze in 9.95. Gatlin and Bolt both posted a season-best time.

"I think my body is telling me that this is it. I've done it all and I've tried my best. It's just one of those things, you got to know when to go and I think it's time for me to go," Bolt told CBC Sports' Perdita Felicien.

"Throughout the years, the rivalry that you see between me and Usain is a gentleman's rivalry. We've never had ill will towards each other." Gatlin said. 

"At the end of the day, we pushed each other. He's made me the runner I am today, the competitor I am today and he's also told me that I've pushed him."
