It's official! Usain Bolt is a massive GAA fan

The last time Jamaica lost a world championship final was in Bolt's rookie year in 2007, when he ran the second leg and only took silver behind the Americans. Bolt has given his all to the sport that made him and which he also remade.

However, Gatlin's agent Renaldo Nehemiah, a former 110m hurdles world record holder, was scathing about Coe's remarks. Bolt also has won 11 world championships.

Bolt, who finished third in the individual 100m behind victor Justin Gatlin and Christian Coleman, said: "I enjoy relays more than anything". All this has happened two days ago but it seems the world has still not come to terms with it. Putting on the now famous Jamaican yellow vest, Bolt has brought so much ecstasy to diverse peoples across the globe. With a cocktail of cockiness, swag and showmanship never seen on the world stage of track and field, Bolt became a worldwide legend.

Eighty meters in, Ta Lou appeared to be the woman who would engineer a surprise win, but Bowie's breakneck lunge at the line, as she and Ta Lou crossed simultaneously-with Bowie tumbling onto the track-ultimately put her atop of the podium.

Incidentally, the look of anguish on Bolt's face - when it struck him that he did not win - rivals that look in Edvard Munch's most famous painting.

He completed a previously unimaginable triple-triple by earning gold medals in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay at the London Olympics in 2012 and the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016.

Even though Bolt ended his 100m career with a bronze, the three times Olympic Champ is not in a hurry to prepare for the 4x100m relay final this Saturday.

Facebook declined to comment on Zhang's relationship to the company, and Zhang did not respond to phone calls requesting comment. The Chinese app even uses the messaging platform WeChat for connecting users in place of Facebook's network.

Still, Bolt was supportive of his young teammates.

Even as he posed for all the selfies afterwards, demonstrating a grace and sportsmanship that proved him just as big a victor in rare defeat, it still felt wrong, a desperately downbeat way to depart for a sportsman who has brought so much joy to all. Bolt managed to do it nine times in his career.

The top three from each of the two heats and next two fastest finishers from the remaining qualify for the final round.

Both Bolt and Gatlin were gracious at the end of the race.

But I maintain that the only difference between Bolt and Gatlin in this respect is that Bolt was smarter, luckier, or better protected. "That was stupid", he said, and straight away I could see Mick's point. However, Bolt was all smiles and gracious in defeat. "I knew it. And when I left the blocks, I was like 'Aaaah'". Bolt's earnings for this year updated as of June: $34.2 million. "Am I really world champion?" Usain Bolt is it!

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.

The Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics at the University of Oslo did a scientific analysis of that run and estimated that Bolt could have finished with a time of 9.55 seconds if he hadn't slowed down to celebrate. Granted, this was because a member of his relay team tested positive.
