Usain Bolt wins bronze in last 100m race of career — IAAF Worlds

Usain Bolt parties hard with girlfriend Kasi Bennett at London cabaret club Streaker steals the show before Bolt's farewell race

The 30-year-old Jamaican was unable to catch a fast start from Gatlin, who was booed after the race and also on receiving his gold medal on Sunday, in contrast to the huge ovation given to eight-time Olympic champion Bolt.

Usain Bolt couldn't end his career with a gold and had to be content winning a bronze at the World Championships, but he partied at a club in London with girlfriend Kasi Bennett to get over his 100 metre world title defeat to drugs cheat Justin Gatlin. "Only here. He only gets it here", he said, as quoted by The Times.

President of the International Association of Athletics Federation, IAAF indicated that the 100m race won by Justin Gatlin was "not the flawless script" adding that he was "not eulogistic that someone who has served two bans has walked off with one of our glittering prizes".

"Sport rarely settles upon the ideal script".

Gatlin was banned for two years in 2001, after failing a dope test for amphetamines found in prescribed medication he had been taking since a child for Attention Deficit Disorder.

There was a case of déjà vu at the London Stadium here in London, England, yesterday, Trinidad and Tobago sprinters Michelle-Lee Ahye and Kelly-Ann Baptiste repeating their historic feat of two years ago, in Beijing, China. The fundamental reason for putting any substance on the banned list, she said, is that is has "an actual or potential performance benefit".

The second ban, we went for an eight-year ban, which would have, in essence, been a life ban.

What Coe is not ready to do is give up on an eventual lifetime ban for Gatlin. "One got watered down, which made it very hard for the second ban".

Gold medallist Justin Gatlin of the USA bows down to the king of Athletics, Usain Bolt, after the men's 100 metres final at the IAAFWorld Championships of Athletics onSaturday.
