Justin Gatlin Beats Usain Bolt To Take The 100m World Championship title

Justin Gatlin Beats Usain Bolt To Take The 100m World Championship Title

Justin Gatlin stole the show at Usain Bolt's final career race to take his 2nd 100m World Championship Title leaving Usain Bolt with the Bronze Medal.

Usain Bolt had been tipped to take his 4th 100m World Championship but will have to settle for a Bronze Medal which will also be part of his biggest disappointments in his Athletic career, sitting alongside his 2011 disqualification in Daegu. 

Justin Gatlin, who was twice banned for doping offenses took advantage of a below-par Bolt to come home in a season-best time of 9.92secs with the Jamaican sprint legend equalling his best time of the year (9.95) also was beaten by Christian Coleman taking second place (9.94).

Gatlin had won his last 100m World Championship Title in Helsinki, 2004 and had to wait 12 years before having another to add to it.
Usain Bolt found it difficult to overtake Coleman, chasing him for most of the race till Gatlin came along, overtook them both to clinch the win from the seventh Lane leaving the audience jaw dropped for what they had seen.

Usain Bolt now has one more title to defend as he has chosen not to defend his 200m World Championship Title. He will be back with his teammates to for his 4x100m relay which is the final race of his career.

Achievements include four World Championships, three 100m World Championship titles and three 100m Olympic gold medals, as well the world record he blazed to in Germany almost a decade ago, coupled with 4x100m titles. 

Usain Bolt celebrated with Gatlin and the fans, refusing to let a disappointing season spoil his happy smiles then treating the London crowd to his trademark lightning bolt celebration.
