Usain Bolt lost his final career race, but he's still the GOAT

Usain Bolt lost his final career race, but he's still the GOAT

For the first time in almost a decade, the world's fastest man isn't named Usain Bolt.

Justin Gatlin who has been banned twice for using a banned substance shocked the whole world as he won the 100m race ending Usain Bolt's reign at the top in his final game on track. Finding an appropriate answer to this question would, no doubt, properly help in ascertaining what the future holds for the sport in the post-Bolt era. Not one, but two overlooked and underappreciated Americans - Justin Gatlin and Christian Coleman - withstood what was once Bolt's undeniable late charge.

The fastest qualifiers are always awarded the more preferable middle lanes.

"You could see in the heat, they wanted to prove a point and show me".

Bolt's swan song was the World Championships 2017. Usain Bolt OJ and Sir Mo Farah, living legends, and thank them for all the great memories they have provided on the track and the inspiration that they leave for all to cherish.

"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.

The fastest man in the world (9 seconds and 58 hundredths of a second on 100 m, 19 seconds 19 hundredths of a second) feared for his put into action, after having pestered against starting blocks not firm enough to his liking, the sleep at the end of the series.

In semifinals earlier that same day, Bolt finished a narrow second to Coleman, but neither man seemed to be pushing it to the limit in the final meters. Gatlin is the only other Tennessee Vol to accomplish the feat. Putting on the now famous Jamaican yellow vest, Bolt has brought so much ecstasy to diverse peoples across the globe. The roar for the Jamaican as he came out to the track was eardrum-shattering, and many expected to ramp this up a decibel or two as he crossed the line to claim another gold.

Bolt's athleticism was way ahead of its time. His charisma is one-of-a-kind and his legacy will forever be intact in a sport he forever changed for the better. "At the turn I wasn't in contention really, so to get a medal from there is a great achievement".

When I run the race I know there will be four or five other runners from a nearby church. Bolt has been running on the IAAF "circuit" since 2001 when he ran in the IAAF World Youth Championships, but it wasn't until the 2008 Summer Olympics that the entire world learned about him. Bolt also has won 11 world championships. For instance, first place in the biennial World Championships is worth $60,000, and world records carry bonuses of $100,000 in that event, according to Forbes.

It's not all over. For Bolt, it goes beyond winning. He owns the world record in the 100m, 200m and as part of the 4x100m Jamaican relay team.
