Bolt leads Jamaica into 4x100 final; US advances

Jamaica's Usain Bolt lays on the track after he pulled up injured in the final of the Men's 4x100m relay during the World Athletics Championships in London Saturday, Aug. 12, 2017. But Bolt pulled up in agony before collapsing 50 metres from the finishing line.

British anchor runner Nethaneel Michell-Blake also dropped onto the ground, in blissful disbelief as his team took the important victory in a world lead time of 37.47 seconds, beating the American squad, consisting of new 100m victor Justin Gatlin and runner-up Christian Coleman, to second place in 37.52.

Beijing worlds silver medalists China finished fourth with second-leg runner Xie Zhenye just coming back from injury.

American veteran Dawn Harper Nelson was second, .04 seconds behind, and Pamela Dutiewicz of Germany took bronze in 12.72.

There was at least one veteran who did produce Saturday as Sally Pearson got another gold medal at the Olympic Stadium in London after missing much of the past two seasons because of injury.

For Bolt, it was the worst possible way to bring the curtains down on a glittering career that has seen him grow into a global icon regarded as perhaps the greatest sprinter of all time.

As per the notice the unfurling of national flag and recitation should be organized at 8:00 am followed by programs at 8:30 am. A cultural program on national unity and sports events will follow then and the program will end with sweet distribution.

However, the 60,000 in the stadium who had come to mark the farewell of sport's greatest showman had only a split second to absorb what was happening as up ahead history was being made by the host nation.

He added: "I think the public have probably heard enough about us being the best generation of sprinting, with no results". I am sorry he got this injury.

The women's quartet, of Zoey Clark, Laviai Nielsen, Perri Shakes-Drayton and Emily Diamond, crossed in a time of 3:24.74 - one second faster than the time that won Team GB bronze in the event last summer. We are confident we can win. The German beat Jakub Vadlejch of the Czech Republic by 16 centimeters.

Not forgetting his eight Olympic gold medals either.

The U.S. finished in 37.52 seconds, a season-best for Team USA in the event, while Japan finished third in 38.04.

The Brit had given his team their only medal of the games so far when he lined up for his final 5k, hoping to become world champion for a staggering 11th time.
