Bolt leads Jamaica home in penultimate race

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

The Jamaican's dominance in sprinting can be compared to what Michael Jordan did in basketball and Michael Phelps in swimming.

Bolt has seven of the fastest 15 times in the 100m of all time. Sometimes, it seems he was just galloping in the stadium.

Author of a starting poor, the eightfold olympic champion has never really mastered the race and his return was too late to prevent Gatlin of the carry bit.

The new champion spent much of his post-race news conference insisting he'd learned to tune out the booing that has followed him the last few years and explaining that he's not that bad a guy.

The GB men, featuring Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake who finished fourth in the 200m, ran the nation's second fastest time ever of 37.76 behind heat winners and fastest qualifiers U.S. who clocked 37.70. The Americans were.05 seconds behind.

Seeing Bolt beaten in his retirement run was a shock, but it also should have been a moment to be celebrated.

For the first time in almost a decade, the world's fastest man isn't named Usain Bolt.

Gatlin beat Usain Bolt last weekend, and, sure enough, the Prime Minister of Jamaica, Andrew Holness, outraged at Bolt being robbed of a golden swansong, demanded life bans for drug cheats. However, Bolt was all smiles and gracious in defeat. "He [Gatlin] is a great competitor". But you have to appreciate what you have and do the best that I can.

Mary's river reopened after grounded ship re-floated
The coast guard placed a protective boom around the ship as a precautionary measure, Lieutenant Junior Grade Sean Murphy said. It traveled on its own power to an anchoring spot near Lake Nickolet for inspection and there was no damage to the hull.

Bolt is also known to love a great party. Being the poster boy of sprinting clearly has its perks. Prior to the 2016 Olympics, the deal was paying him $10 million a year.

Bolt is keen to bring his experience, despite feeling a little sore after his efforts in the individual event. It's undoubtedly the hardest, most-grueling race to master on the track. All in all, his career earnings estimate is at £47 million. That New York City race is also where Bolt set a new world record, his first, and the race was preceded by a lightning storm.

He holds world records for the 100- and 200-meter competition. Only four other sprinters in history have managed to breach the 9.78 second-threshold: Yohan Blake and Asafa Powell, Justin Gatlin, and Tyson Gay. All nine are by Bolt.

GENDER DEBATE Should Caster Semenya compete as a woman at London 2017 World Championships?

Since he first ran the blue riband shorter event in 2007, he has run 54 100m races, excluding heats, and won all but six.

His entire career is a celebration itself. In a sport rife with doping, he stands out as a bright light. His post-race celebrations became a trademark.

For a decade, he has been this intimidating figure on the track for his opponents - winning all the Olympic or world championship finals he was in, except one hiccup when he false started in the 100m final in Daegu world championships in 2011.
