He wanted to go fast like Ricky Bobby. The 100m race has always carried the most glory and prestige on the track. Taylor won with a jump of 17.68 meters but was a bit disappointed because he didn't hit the 22-year-old world record that he's had his sights on for a while. This is a world filled with intrigue, drama and often great pain as many competitors from around the world see their dreams dashed at the very first hurdle. Bolt said: 'There are no words to describe how I am feeling. Bolt has given his all to the sport that made him and which he also remade. What's more, Gatlin denies him the crutch of old age, which Bolt could have leaned on to justify his retirement and/or rationalize this loss.

Bolt has seven of the fastest 15 times in the 100m of all time. In a separate report by BBC News, he holds the world record in 100m race with 9.58 seconds. The rest is history historic.

And Bolt relished the adulation at the 60,000-capacity Olympic Stadium. He left as a legend.

After 16 years of competing on the global stage, fans of athletics will likely never see Usain Bolt run another competitive track race. To many athletics followers and buffs, this does not augur well for the future of track and field as it may be interpreted to mean the triumph of evil over good. He limped to the finish line in agony. Bolt was simply on another level. Meanwhile, Bolt, flamboyant in winning but gracious in defeat, congratulated his longtime foe.

Felix has won 14 medals at the world championships and can move up to 16 if she runs the 4x400 relay and the United States wins medals in both events. His signature "lightning Bolt" pose became iconic.

The exercises are expected to run from August 21-31 and involve tens of thousands of troops on the ground and in the sea and air. Peterson said he reserves judgment, stating that everyone responds differently to a bully.

Bolt's speed and charisma made him a household name.

He said; " During the 2012 Olympics, the fans jeered Gatlin and the same thing happened in the World Championship in 2015". Bear in mind that Lance Armstrong managed to end his career without getting caught ... too. His planned retirement ended almost as shocking as his breakout Beijing.

Usain Bolt, the greatest sprinter in modern times, said he plans on retiring after running his final races this week at the world championships in London. He was beaten by Gatling and American Chris Coleman.

The crowd's dissatisfaction was less audible when Gatlin stepped on top of the podium to collect his medal, but some fans did make their displeasure known. So Bolt was rewarded with about $30,000 for his haul of three gold medals that year. The IAAF World Championships are the coronation of Bolt's career, he planned to retire after the competition. Because I fear he'll just end up like a junkie chasing the dragon ... I am determined to get those records and those medals back into the hands of their rightful owners. "I've done all I can for the sport, so it's time to go", he added. He also could be the richest.

The $34.2 million for 2017 tracks slightly higher than 2016, when Forbes pegged Bolt's earnings at $32.5 million. Jamaica's Yohan Blake is a doubt for the 4x100 metres relay final at the World Athletics Championships and will be assessed by medical staff before today's final, head Coach Maurice Wilson said. Performance-wise, South Africa's Wayde van Niekerk has the tools.
