August 11, 2013

Usain proves that he is indeed still the sprinting king of the world when he won the men’s  100m title today in a season best time of 9.77 (-0.3ws)  seconds ahead of American Justin Gatlin ( 9.85) and Jamaica’s Nesta Carter ( 9.95). Bolt who lead a quartet of Jamaicans (Nickel Ashmeade, Kemar Bailey-Cole and Carter) had lackluster performances in the earlier rounds winning both his heats and semifinal races in 10.07 and 9.92 seconds respectively. In the final, Bolt was able to use his superior top-end speed to pass and hold-off Gatlin, who had a phenomenal start and lead the race for the first 50m.

During his post-race celebration, Gatlin embraced and congratulated Bolt, who then walked around the stadium greeting fans and posing for pictures.

Bolt superb performance in the 100m was a welcome sight to track fans, who had recently seen their sports dragged through the doldrums of doping allegiances.

Bolt will now focus his attention the 200m with preliminary rounds schedule to begin on Friday 16 (Day 7) with the final set for Saturday 17 (Day 8.).

Bolt’s teammates Ashmeade (9.90) and Bailey-Cole (9.92) both set personal best in the 100 semi-final.
