Jamaica & GB through to relay final

Justin Gatlin stuns Usain Bolt to win 100m world title

He is untouchable in the Olympics and the World Championship.

Meanwhile, Bolt continued to give credit to 100m gold medalist Justin Gatlin for his perseverance in a hard atmosphere amongst the fans in London, where they booed the 25-year-old American throughout the sprint competition. And the result in the relay is no longer a foregone conclusion.

"This is sport, there are no guarantees, there isn't always a happy ending. It doesn't change anything in my career".

Both nations won their heats early Saturday, though the US relay squad got the baton around with more aplomb than Jamaica, which had to rely on Bolt to clinch victory. Later, he bowed down to the man he finally defeated.

Growing up in Sherwood Content, Trelawny, Jamaica - a village in the rugged and remote interior of the Caribbean island - he spent his time playing soccer and cricket until his first coach, Pablo McNeil, saw his talent and started coaching him in running. I get so much support from the crowd.

They ranked fifth fastest going into the final, trailing the US, Britain, Germany and Switzerland.

The Beeb was more distraught than Bolt who spent forever saying his goodbyes while little mention was made of the bad man who had won.

The 26-year-old from Sand Hill, Miss., the silver medal victor in the 100 at the Rio Olympics last August, coming in second to Thompson, ended an impressive stretch for the 25-year-old from Manchester, Jamaica.

"I'm sorry for not being able to finish on a win, but I thank you for your support", was launched to the crowd the one who has been the hero of the evening, even in defeat, and, good player, has been offered a brace of good, thanks to his executioner.

Thunderclap over London: the superstar of sprint Usain Bolt has missed his farewell with the 100-m being deprived of a final world title by the bad, loved Justin Gatlin, income from a suspension of four years for doping and sacred under the jeers of the public.

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.

"Mo has proven himself over and over again", Bolt said. "I'm not in shape to run 200 meters right now".

Time and age may have taken their toll on Usain Bolt, we have seen him run better and faster, and after all, he has now reached the grand old age of 30.

Great Britain clocked the second best time of 37.76, while France were fourth with their season's best of 38.03.

His first heat, on Friday night, was ugly. "I knew it. And when I left the blocks, I was like 'Aaaah'". "There are a lot more guys", he said.

Gatlin is the sport's most controversial drugs cheat.

While that chase was unfolding, Gatlin, out in Lane 8, was coming from behind. But Bolt did applaud Gatlin as he received his medal.

Both Bolt and his fellow double Olympic sprint champion Elaine Thompson were dethroned in the 100m, while Jamaica did not have a single representative in the men's 200m final. It was Gatlin in 2004.
