Usain Bolt's Career Ends By Pulling Up Lame In 4×100

I gave it my all, as always. In fact Usain said to me "Yohan, I think this is crazy". "I will come say goodbye".

Dawn Harper Nelson of the United States, the 2008 Olympic champion, got silver in 12.63. The fans loved seeing Usain Bolt run one last time, but it was hard to see him end with an injury. We waited a really long time.

The sprint superstar was left disappointed in the concluding chapter of his individual career a week ago, forced to settle for bronze as the controversial Justin Gatlin took gold in the 100m.

Bolt's teammates on the once-fabled Jamaican sprint squad were far from unmatchable, too.

Britain's men set a national record of 37.47sec to take gold, with the United States second in 37.52 and Japan third in 38.04. Bolt was the final leg for his team on this race.

"To be honest with you it takes so much out of me. We hope for the best for him".

"It just happened", Jamaican leadoff runner Omar McLeod said.

What TV channel will air Usain Bolt's last race live?

But it was hardly the sendoff anyone anticipated for the world-record sprinter.

Team USA was able to overcome some hiccups but remained determined throughout their campaign, and inspired by Tori, they were able to pull off their first victory in over six years. Among those 10 medals, four of them were from the Olympics.

He finished second in the 5,000m to Ethiopia's Muktar Edris. American Paul Chelimo earned bronze after grabbing silver behind Farah in Rio. "I gave it all, I didn't have a single bit left at the end".

The penultimate day of the championships also has former 100 metres hurdles champion Sally Pearson of Australia going up against world record holder Kendra Harrison of the USA for the title.

And Blake, who won Olympic 4x100m relay gold with Bolt and Jamaica in 2012 and 2016, believes the lengthy build-up caused Bolt's injury in London on Saturday night.

He looked clearly injured and jerked backwards sharply, then put his foot to the ground gingerly and tried to step. he tumbled forward in a somersault and laid on the track as all other runners crossed the finish line.

The winning time, a combination of Ujah's ideal reactions, flawless changeovers and a superbly-timed dip from Mitchell-Blake to cross the line ahead of 100m silver medallist Christian Coleman, erased the 18-year-old European record of 37.73 - also held by Britain.

Vashti Cunningham, the daughter of retired NFL All-Pro quarterback Randall Cunningham, finished 10th in the high jump despite coming in ranked second in the world this year.
