Mo Farah & Usain Bolt prepare for final events

Mo Farah & Usain Bolt prepare for final events

The monument of the athletics, only 3rd behind Gatlin (9 seconds and 92 cents) and the American Christian Coleman (9 seconds and 94 hundredths of a second) in a time of 9 sec 95, has seen the great feast promised marred by a rider to the sulfurous past, which adds to her locker, a crime of lèse-majesté in the enclosure heated from the olympic Stadium.

His farewell championships have given a glimpse of athletics life without him. He completed 100 meters in a mind bogging 8.70 seconds.

"I can't believe you're asking me that", Bolt said, according to The Guardian. "They really carry you around over every changeover".

"Let's have a look at the medal table", chortled Gabby Logan, as after one race Team GB/Somalia ruled supreme, but there hasn't been much to raise a titter since.

For many of those who get knocked out during the heats, the facial expressions show utter distress and dejection.

German Triple Jumper Neele Eckhardt collapsed but was well enough to compete on Saturday, and took part in Monday's final.

Mourinho hails Lukaku & Matic despite open goal miss, defensive blunders
The 23-year-old is not the finished article, but his energy and physical presence make his ideal for the Premier League . Nemanja Matic made 112 defensive actions in the Premier League last season.

In contrast to these images are some that reflect utter pride at the accomplishment that has just occurred on the track. The fans, however, are looking forward to seeing their superstar in action one last time as he takes to the track. The low temperature and my competitors including Mo Farah.

Bolt insisted this would be the final individual race of his storied career - his swan song. He gave other athletes hope. This is how the USA has turned itself into a powerhouse - meticulous attention to detail and forward thinking. After blitzing through the TV broadcasters, Felix made her way serenely through the mixed zone (an area of journalists to fire questions at her), not stopping once, completely focused and ready to head back to the hotel and analyse her tape. To many athletics followers and buffs, this does not augur well for the future of track and field as it may be interpreted to mean the triumph of evil over good.

No matter the result of the relay, organisers said Bolt will be afforded a dedicated lap of honour on Sunday in tribute to his unbelievable track career.

He isn't the fastest man alive for nothing. Furthermore, having never been associated with doping, he has come to represent a bastion against the darker forces of this world. Many of his green and gold clad Jamaican countrymen had crossed the Atlantic to witness his grand finale. But it was not to be.

Jamaica now leads the Caribbean with three medals -two bronze and one gold, while Cuba, The Bahamas and Trinidad & Tobago have one each. When announced at heats, spectators booed Gatlin.

A hush descended on the crowd - should they applaud the clearly spectacular performance of the American or boo the man who had been caught up not once, but twice, for taking performance-enhancing drugs, and who had been banned for this offence for a number of years? It is a combination of these that has made Bolt arguably the most globally recognised sportsman since Muhammad Ali, with a greater global fan base than a Tiger Woods or Michael Jordan.

In defeat, the gracious Bolt even stopped to do his signature "To Di World" pose, much to the approval of adoring followers. Bolt has been running on the IAAF "circuit" since 2001 when he ran in the IAAF World Youth Championships, but it wasn't until the 2008 Summer Olympics that the entire world learned about him.
