The greatest sprinter in history, Usian Bolt was defeated in the 100m final on Saturday night at the 2017 London IAAF World Championships.
It marked the first final Bolt loss of any kind in over four years, spoiling what could have been a perfect ending to a storybook career.
Bolt’s world records may remain standing, but he would not accomplish his goal of remaining undefeated in the 100m through the end of his career.
The eight-time Olympic champion and 100m and 200m world-record holder finished third in the 100m at the World Championships in London, finishing in a time of 9.95.
Justin Gatlin, a two-time convicted drug cheat, drew boos from the crowd as he won in a time of 9.92 and celebrated wildly, putting his finger to his lips. Young American Christian Coleman finished in second after a run of 9.94.
Bolt will return later in the championships to anchor Jamaica’s 4x100m team in the hopes of one final gold medal.
