Usain Bolt crashes to track, loses final career race at worlds

Gatlin spoils Bolt's farewell in 100m with remarkable gold IAAF World Championships Athletes Beaten By Food Poisioning

The world will get a chance to see Bolt run competitively for one last time as he lines up for Jamaica in the 4x100 metres relay event at the IAAF World Athletics championships in London.

The fastest qualifiers are always awarded the more preferable middle lanes. "They wanted me to go for one more season".

Gatlin's victory over Bolt was not embraced well by the fans present for the Championships.

"Why settle? I want to be historic", Mr McLeod has been quoted as saying. He was clutching his leg on the ground and needed help off the track. "I'm just happy to be one of his biggest competitors". He told ESPN, he wasn't "comfortable in the starting blocks".

During Friday's competition, the most jaw-dropping result in a week of upsets came in the women's steeplechase, where the United States clinched an unlikely 1-2 finish. A 21-year-old Christian Coleman too went past the Jamaican by a hundredth of a second. 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.

Bolt will be joined in the heats by a supporting cast of Tyquendo Tracey, Julian Forte and Michael Campbell - a few of the athletes who will be charged with keeping the island in the forefront of worldwide sprinting in the years to come. Many of his green and gold clad Jamaican countrymen had crossed the Atlantic to witness his grand finale. I completely lost my race plan.


"They've been outstanding so far, and continue to surprise me and give me energy", Bolt said. It's all I've known in the sport. However, 400m champions usually fall into obscurity outside the world of track and field. His Olympics record is, to say the least, awesome: three Olympics, three gold medals in each of the three races he competed for; a world record over 100m, a world record over 200m, a world record in the sprint 400m relay.

It's not all over.

ESPN went on to compare how the race was an event wherein the life stories of Gatlin and Bolt changed.

The men's 4x400m relay qualifying heats include a British quartet led by Martyn Rooney - who was recently among the team retrospectively awarded bronze at the 2008 Olympics.

This enlightened attitude towards performance-enhancing drugs would have precluded the "scandals" that now threaten the professional careers of Tour de France Champion Floyd Landis and Olympic Champion Justin Gatlin (100m); to say nothing of sparing them global ridicule as pathetic liars and cheaters. Gatlin quickly became a rogue of modern athletics and has been greeted by boos and jeers in some of his races.

While he is now the world's fastest man, he may hear Coleman's young footsteps chasing him down.
