No Australians in athletics relay finals

Gatlin spoils Bolt's farewell in 100m with remarkable gold

Gatlin spoils Bolt's farewell in 100m with remarkable gold

The world of athletics would have wanted another passing of the baton at a time when its biggest star, the CV clean and without the slightest suspicion, has made a decision to hang up the spikes.

This time, the afterburners kicked in but not hard enough.

Coe - who had said prior to being elected president of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) he felt "queasy" about dopers returning and winning titles - remarked he wasn't very excited about the prospect of placing the gold medal around Gatlin's neck. So the 30-year-old has the scope to compete in the relay heats this time.

While Usain Bolt was cheered as he received his bronze medal but Gatlin got the opposite reaction. And the result in the relay is no longer a foregone conclusion. "It doesn't change anything in my career".

Jamaica set the sprint relay world record of 36.84 seconds at the 2012 Olympics at the London Stadium. He was clutching his leg on the ground and needed help off the track. Later, he bowed down to the man he finally defeated. "I'm just happy to be one of his biggest competitors".

The Americans qualified fastest in 37.70. "Off the last hurdle I gave everything and threw myself for a dip just in case".

The 31-year old legend hugged and congratulated both Gatlin and Coleman after the race, he also went on to say that Gatlin has "served his time". We can only agree with her assessment that "I cannot ask for anything more". Usain Bolt of Jamaica in action.

It was a disappointing end for Bolt and his legions of fans, as past year he announced that London would be his retirement party.

Usain Bolt and Justin Gatlin will meet in a final duel on the track after helping their teams qualify for the final of the 4x100-metre relay at the world championships on Saturday in London, England.

A few minutes after that, he stepped onto the track, kneeled down and kissed the finish line that he crossed in Lane 4.

"They came out here and did the job we wanted them to do, and that's to get us to the finals".

Nehemiah, who missed out on his chance of an Olympics due to the United States boycott of the 1980 Games in Moscow over the invasion of Afghanistan, said if Bolt could accept graciously that Gatlin was justified in being there, then it should be good enough for anybody. A friend of mine named Mick had one of his legs amputated, he told me that one of the things he regretted was getting so angry with himself that he never managed to run a marathon under three hours.

The Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics at the University of Oslo did a scientific analysis of that run and estimated that Bolt could have finished with a time of 9.55 seconds if he hadn't slowed down to celebrate.

His first heat, on Friday night, was ugly. He is an enigma who starts and ends a race in an unusual electrifying fashion.

"Physically I am allright, there is a little bit of pain, but nothing a massage can't cure, I'm taking it easy", Bolt said of his condition two days after finishing third despite clocking his season's best-equalling 9.95 seconds in the 100 metres final. It's all I've known in the sport.

He was the second-slowest starter in the eight-man field.

Bolt is still the greatest sprinter in history and one of the most dominant athletes ever, but he has finally been humbled.

While that chase was unfolding, Gatlin, out in Lane 8, was coming from behind.
