The Final Showdown for Bolt: 4X100m Relay This Saturday

Gatlin spoils Bolt's farewell in 100m with remarkable gold IAAF World Championships Athletes Beaten By Food Poisioning

The world will get a chance to see Bolt run competitively for one last time as he lines up for Jamaica in the 4x100 metres relay event at the IAAF World Athletics championships in London.

Not only did Bolt win the 100m race, he did so by setting a new world record of 9.69 which remains valid till date.

In defeat, the gracious Bolt even stopped to do his signature "To Di World" pose, much to the approval of adoring followers.

"Why settle? I want to be historic", Mr McLeod has been quoted as saying. I did it for the fans.

Usain Bolt's finish line photos were nearly always the same.

"It doesn't change anything, for me". "I lost the race to a great competitor".

"Between the bikes, loud, horrid music, parties and screams, I honestly wish he would go back to where he came from", his neighbor-model Jodi Stewart-Henriques wrote on Facebook in 2015.

I saw him on the TV last season, but it will depend on how he and the other players adjust to the Premier League. Their summer signings have improved the team and I don't think Pep Guardiola has stopped spending yet.

When I run the race I know there will be four or five other runners from a nearby church.

And we believe they are right. "I don't know where I will go or where my career will go, but it's exciting", he said.

The greatest sprinter in history will take his final stride on the track, bringing to an end an era of unmatched dominance, influence and impact.

Justin Gatlin didn't get a nice reaction from the crowd as he received his World championship gold medal for winning the 100m race in the London Stadium.

British Olympic heroes achieved astonishing results that year, and seeing athletes like Mo Farah return for a final swan song at the World Athletics Championships has been thrilling to watch.

"It's time for me to pack it up", he said.

Athletics' world governing body head Sebastian Coe lavished with praises for him.

Perseid meteor shower will light up the sky
The Perseid meteor showers come from the Swift-Tuttle comet, which visits Earth about every 130 years and last appeared in 1992. In fact, the meteors which we see nearly certainly broke off from Swift-Tuttle during its 1862 visit and not the 1992 visit.

Maybe so, but when he asks the crowd where Bolt is, in between booing, they'll say 'he's behind you.' Two places behind you.

Speaking to PTI on the sidelines of the ongoing World Athletics Championships, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) chief said tackling doping should remain the sole prerogative of sports bodies.

"I wanted to pay homage to him", Gatlin said.

Bolt has won the affection of so many not just with his feats but also a charismatic personality. So do other clean athletes like Dame Valerie Adams, who, long before she was ripped off by Belarus thrower Nadzeya Ostapchuk at the London Olympics in 2012 was unequivocal that a drugs cheat should be out of the sport forever.

American athletes have taken front and center at these Championships already and, watching the operations of the US Team, it is little wonder why.

A distraught Bolt was consoled on the ground by his sprint team-mates and he limped out of the stadium, not the way he probably envisaged his send-off going.
