Usain Bolt seeking revenge over Justin Gatlin

"I'm not eulogistic that someone who has served two bans has walked off with one of our glittering prizes", said the 60-year-old. Later, he bowed down to the man he finally defeated. Before his $10 million contract, Puma was said to be paying him $1.5 million a year, according to the Financial Times. Ending the career in 100m with a bronze, Bolt confessed that though he is physically a 100% yet some niggles are bothering him. "It's hard to be sad because of the energy I'm getting from the crowd", said the Jamaican, who suffered a rare defeat in the 100 meters when he took bronze.

Sadly I think some of the same sort of public relations may be in play with the current ban by the IAAF on Russian Federation. Otherwise, those who would replace Bolt in the headlines have flopped.

With apologies to Americans Justin Gatling, Tyson Gay and Trayvon Bromwell, I most-certainly rooted for the Jamaican sensations during the Olympic Games as if I was Bob Marley reincarnated.

"I'm excited to just live normally and get up and know that I have no training for once and can do what I want".

Always a fan favorite, Bolt maintained his Hollywood smile as he jogged around the track following the race, Jamaican flag in tow.

Usain Bolt successfully steered his Jamaica team through to the final of the men's 4x100m, setting up the last race of his career. Bolt routinely slowed down before crossing the finish line.

Then, he gave the fans what they've come to expect: The famous "To The World" pose, which used to be the cherry on top of a raucous, fun-filled night.

When asked on his thoughts about his final race before retirement he responded.

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. "I'm not in shape to run 200 meters right now". We need to believe everything we see when we watch sport is clean and real, otherwise what is the point.

Asha Philip, Desiree Henry, Dina Asher-Smith and Daryll Neita ran a collective time of 42.19 seconds to finish behind gold-winners USA.

His first heat, on Friday night, was ugly.

So when the two move away, what kind of voids will they leave behind? You guys have seen me since I was a child, running around, going to the English Schools. "I knew it. And when I left the blocks, I was like 'Aaaah'". He's also the only man in history to run under 10 seconds in the 100m, under 20 seconds in the 200m and under 44 seconds in the 400m. The media has most certainly had to lot to say about it as well.

"He (Bolt) has been an anchor in our sport for a decade and he has had an extraordinary influence".

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

Both Bolt and Gatlin were gracious at the end of the race.

France and China followed Jamaica home to reach the final, while United States won the first heat in a world-leading time of 37.70 seconds, clear of Great Britain and Japan. It was Gatlin in 2004.
