Usain Bolt dethroned in last competitive race

This was supposed to be his last competitive race.

At 30 years, Jamaica’s Usain Bolt wanted to leave the stage with a loud ovation as the greatest 100 and 200 metres runner ever at the London World Athletics Championships.

It turned out to be a disastrous outing.

Bolt breasted the tape at 9.95 seconds behind American drugs cheat Justin Gatlin who coasted home in 9.92 seconds and Christian Coleman also of the USA in made a time of 9.94seconds.

Gatlin was out in lane eight, and while everyone’s attentions were on the battle in lane four and five, the US star drove hard in the last 40m to storm to victory.

Bolt gave himself a lot to do in the second-half of that race and it proved too much.
