After much intense preparation and nervous fans waiting to see who would clinch the “fastest man” title, Usain Bolt proves once again that when it comes to speed, no one can beat him.
Usain lit the stadium up with his lightning fast sprint, beating contenders Justin Gatilin (USA) and Andre De Grasse (Canada) with a strong finish of 9.81s.
Upon winning the race, he pointed up as if thanking his biggest supporter and then he struck his familiar pose called To Di World.
He leaned back cocking an elbow and pointed his index fingers skyward as if launching an arrow or a bolt of lightning.
Usain Bolt crossed the line first leaving Justin Gatlin of the United States was second in 9.89, and Andre De Grasse of Canada was third in 9.91, in the dust – securing his place as the greatest sprinter of all time.
Bolt is the only sprinter, man or woman, to win the 100 three times. He is also favoured for a third straight gold medal at 200 meters and as the most vital member of Jamaica’s 4×100-meter relay team.
