Team USA Beat Bolt in His Last 100m Race

Gatlin spoils Bolt's farewell in 100m with remarkable gold

Usain Bolt was the overwhelming favourite to win the 100m race as he planned to retire after this tournament but things didn't quite work in his favour as he finished in third place behind Christian Coleman in second place and Jason Gatlin in the first place.

In the women's 4x100m relay, all the medal contenders - United States, Great Britain, Germany and defending champions Jamaica - progressed to the final round without much trouble, while the Bahamas quartet failed to finish in the second heat due to a poor second baton change.

Coe's comments came on the eve of IAAF Congress here where the main topic on the agenda was Russian Federation and whether the country had done enough to be allowed back from the wilderness following allegations of state-supported doping. 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.

"The very fact that we are re-presenting medals to athletes from the 2009 World Championships in Berlin tells me that we're not throwing this under the carpet", he said.

Gatlin beat Usain Bolt last weekend, and, sure enough, the Prime Minister of Jamaica, Andrew Holness, outraged at Bolt being robbed of a golden swansong, demanded life bans for drug cheats.

Van Niekerk had his chance.

Koeman says he will only be able to make a true assessment of his team after they complete their transfer business. It is always better to start at home than away.

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

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

Van Niekerk was central to this. Van Niekerk's 400m world record in Rio was legendary. It's undoubtedly the hardest, most-grueling race to master on the track.

The post Coe and IAAF behaviour "inhumane": Gatlin's agent appeared first on The Independent Uganda:. He would take both golds in the 2012 and 2016 Olympics as well, along with a raft of World Championship medals and broken records.

"He's done his time, he plays by the rules, the IAAF reinstated him".

That comes at a cost, however.

Bill Hader Mooches Up 'SNL' Weekend Update Summer Edition
The show will wrap when SNL gets back into full production. "Even FDR stood up when he was talking tough". But the highlight of the evening, as she is every evening, was Leslie Jones as herself.

Perhaps more foreboding, though, is that the IOC has already stripped Bolt of one of his nine Olympic gold medals. Even the Olympics suffer that particular fate.

In the Austrian capital, the end of every point was greeted by loud, pumping dance music which the crowd relentlessly clapped along to. They said if you come back we should accept that. These are more cringeworthy than creative.

Bolt also has two Olympic 4x100m titles.

Olympic champion and world-record holder Ruth Jebet of Bahrain (formerly Kenya) faded badly on the final lap.

Still, supporters who attended in their droves will have their moments to cherish. One lady mentioned that Gatlin's win reminded her that the Pharisees and religious teachers were not at all happy with Jesus and 'They growled, "He takes in sinners and eats meals with them, treating them like old friends."' (Luke 15:3) So Jesus addressed their complaint by telling three stories about a lost sheep, a lost coin and a lost son, all of whom were found.
